There are eight clans in both the Junior School and Senior and Middle School, named for our Scottish roots.
For generations, clans have provided a forum for friendly sporting competition, charitable work, spirit-building and the transmission of traditions. Students enjoy belonging to their clan, a small cross-grade group within the school community that promotes school spirit.
Every student and every faculty member belongs to a clan, and Junior Clans are twinned with clans in the Senior and Middle School. Students moving from the Junior School to the Senior and Middle School will automatically be placed in their twinned Senior School clan. Clan placement is also determined by a sibling’s clan or a related alumna’s clan.
Each Senior and Middle School clan has a Senior Chieftain, elected by its own members, and an elected representative from Grade 8.
