The goal of the Student Council is to promote scholarship, fellowship, harmony and participation in the life of the school community. Members of the Student Council work towards helping the Upper School community function in an orderly, positive and effective manner.
The Executive Council of the Student Council, elected each Spring by the students and faculty, serves as the governing body for the students. In order to be a member of the Executive Council, one must possess the following qualifications: leadership, scholarship, character and service. All students make up the legislative body and have class representatives to Student Council.
Election to Student Council is an honor, an opportunity to learn and practice the functions of democratic leadership, and a way to understand carrying out responsibility. Student Council representatives are the voices of each class. Class members may discuss their ideas and concerns with their elected representatives who should present the concerns to the Executive Council.
The most visible aspect of the Student Council is their involvement and dedication to planning, promoting and accomplishing activities and events for the student body. These may include assemblies for the entire school to enhance our sense of community, social events for the Middle and Upper School to strengthen their bond, work programs, "just for fun" events for the Upper School, and fundraisers to provide the money for these activities.
