like to urge you to read more about our new vision for the future of
Besant Hill School in the Strategic Plan, "Our Common Purpose: 2013
– 2019." During the upcoming months and years, we will be
working to achieve the priorities outlined in the plan. We are
confident that with these efforts devoted to the students in our
school, the time spent at Besant Hill is one of the best experiences
that a high school student can have today. This is an environment

encourage a commitment to lifelong scholarship.
