Later that evening the “Beyond Glimpses of Morisot” class (avec teachers Carol Plough, Anna Swinbourne, and me) arrived back at Miss Porter’s School in dear old Farmington Village after a fantastic trip to two amazing, art-filled cities!
For our seniors, the overarching goal of InterMission is to prepare our oldest students to soon fulfill the final words of our mission statement, “we expect our graduates to shape a changing world.” Our students are eager to see how our Ancients and their work model the call of the school’s mission. Our hope is that students emerge from the experience with a keen awareness of themselves as learners and as positive agents of change. Students are empowered to reflect upon the people they are and the people they will become.
