Zoe Petrovas and Tyler Kolek were both recently named "Hometown Heroes" by a local television station

Athletics

  

Two Dragons were recently named "Hometown Heroes" in back-to-back weeks of December by local news channel WPRI-TV.

Zoe Petrovas '20 earned the honor for crushing her initial $1,000 fundraising goal for the Tufts Half Marathon in Narragansett, Rhode Island, in October, raising over $26,000 in total for the Womens Resource Center in Newport. Watch the video here.

Tyler Kolek '20 transferred to St. George's after earning his first team All-State honor for basketball as a junior at Cumberland High School. With a career point total of over 1,400, Kolek is hoping playing in the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council will improve his game and boost his profile as he looks to play in college.

Head of School Alixe Callen's joint editorial on the decision to stop Advanced Placement courses

Academics

Head of School Alixe Callen recently co-wrote an editorial with Lincoln School head Suzanne Fogarty on the decisions to discontinue Advanced Placement courses at both schools and promote a more balanced and diverse curriculum.

St. George's School got rid of AP courses on campus three years ago, followed by Lincoln School a year later.

"Though we made these decisions independently, we share the same motivation: to provide the best, most challenging academic experience for our students, one that prepares them for the world that awaits, and not just for a test they are required to take," Ms. Callen and Ms. Fogarty wrote in the Providence Business News op-ed.
