Manhattan Country School was the focus of two online articles this week.
Director Michèle Solá was featured as DNAinfo’s Principal of the Week. She spoke with reporter Shaye Weaver about the school’s upcoming move to the Upper West Side and the challenges associated with the change, the role of activism and social justice in MCS curriculum, the importance of community and her goals for the next few years.
MCS seventh- and eighth-graders’ activism project, Build Bridges, Not Borders, was highlighted on the National Association of Independent Schools’ Inspiration Lab website. The piece describes the students’ efforts to raise awareness about the Syrian refugee crisis and Islamophobia.
