The Upper School service program is an integral part of the learning and growing experience for our students. Here students learn to use their skills, abilities, and emotional intelligence to impact the world beyond the self and for the better. This is the foundation of leadership. As stated in our mission, our students learn to “advocate for themselves and others, and to contribute their skills in support of causes.”
Current service learning opportunities include:
A peer-elected body, student government discusses and tackles important initiatives and plans important school events throughout the year.
Students visit nearby Harrington Elementary School each week and develop relationships with students as reading and personal mentors.
Students become active stewards and agents for sustainability at Tower. They manage the school's composting and recycling efforts.
The Turret (Tower's literary magazine)
Student editors create the annual literary magazine, comprised entirely of student writing and illustration.
Students assist volunteer environmentalists at Marblehead Conservancy to transform the local environmental landscape by learning to identify and remove invasive species and plant native trees along the rail trail.
Students visit Lafayette Nursing Facility and form meaningful relationships with the residents
School Climate Committee
Students identify challenges in student life and create change with the goal of improving the overall school experience for all students.
