Putting the Cool in Boarding School

Putting the 'Cool' in Boarding SchoolAs part of WFSP’s Cool Schools series, reporter Mark Dixson filed four reports covering some of the uncommon, specialized experiences available to Marvelwood School (Kent, CT) students.

The intallments feature students, and teachers, talking about their programs and, often, the benefits of a small interconnected community.

Dixson’s reports show Marvelwood students engaged in experiences ranging from the service oriented caring and training of future service dogs, to the artistic pursuit of jewelry making, to athletic rock climbing.

Each story offers a window into, not only what Marvelwood students experience, but also how Marvelwood faculty work, as well as the things that the greater Marvelwood community holds important and valuable. The high level of connection and individual pursuit is classic small school.
