Project Week. Project Week is to provide all students and faculty time for an extended and vigorous investigation of an essential question through outstanding educational opportunities that are not possible in the standard classroom setting. A key component of the program is that students and faculty share their experiences and learned outcomes with the broader New Hampton School community, including parents and alumni.
Student Leadership. Students have a variety of leadership opportunities to pursue within the School Life Office. They can be selected to be Proctors or elected to Student Council. Each gives students a different role to experience leadership.
