Made possible by the Harley Fund: New Bus

Our students take advantage of opportunities for civic work, college visits, sporting teams, and other activities all around the Greater Rochester area. Thanks to your support of the Harley Fund, we were able to purchase our own bus to help them get where they need to go!

Made possible by the Harley Fund:
NAIS High-Achieving Schools Pilot Study

$7,000 from the Harley Fund went to bring researcher Dr. Suniya Luthar to the Harley school for the NAIS High-Achieving Schools Pilot Study.

NAIS High-Achieving Schools Pilot Study.

Research shows students in high-achieving schools face high pressure to succeed and some students struggle, exhibiting signs of depression, anxiety, or substance use. For schools seeking to foster a more supportive community and focus on student health and well-being,
having data to inform decision-making is critical. To assist schools in their efforts, NAIS is partnering with Dr. Suniya Luthar, a leading expert on resilience in adolescents, and her Authentic Connections group to launch a pilot research study with eight member schools
during Winter 2018/Spring 2019.

High-achieving schools are characterized by their above-average standardized test scores, rich extracurricular and academic offerings, and graduates heading to selective colleges. Often, these schools and their students are considered particularly successful. But students in
high-achieving schools may also experience negative effects of stress.

Dr. Luthar and her team work with schools using their High-Achieving Schools (HAS) survey and expertise to provide data-driven suggestions to school leaders to maximize student health and well-being. The HAS
survey is based on 30 years of peer-reviewed scientific research and is continually refined to include culture-specific items that are related to psychological distress and substance use. Unlike other surveys, HAS focuses on aspects of student life that can be modified
to foster well-being and assesses students’ positive personal attributes, including empathy, altruism, and investment in the greater good.

To test the value of using the HAS survey more broadly, NAIS is launching a pilot with eight high schools that are members of NAIS. Previous participants have used the results of HAS to identify key priorities to focus on to maximize the well-being of young people.

Students may create independent studies with supervising teachers throughout their Upper School experience or, during Grade 12, they can design Capstone projects—intensive collaborations with Harley faculty and off-campus mentors—involving rigorous academic study and culminating in public presentations. They are empowered to create their own curriculum, set goals, and work on time management skills in order to accomplish their objectives.

Independent Studies run the gamut from The Psychology of Sports to Furniture Design to The Neuroimaging of Alzheimer’s Disease. Capstones, meanwhile, are as diverse as the students who pursue them: Fictional Rochester, Autobiographical Art, Biomimicry Education, Organic Fuel, and Rochester Refugees. 

Indicative of Upper School curiosity and creativity, pursuits such as these distinguish our graduates in college. Through deep dives of this sort, Harley students master more than speaking, writing, and computing: they learn to communicate, advocate, collaborate, organize, listen, and empathize.
