Even as the world and our school evolve we deliberately reach backwards into our history to embrace ideas that strengthen our community and help our students. At Suffield we emphasize kindness, high standards, and respecting our surroundings. We are not budging on some aspects of our program we feel are timeless and important like sit-down lunch, required study hall, physical activity for each student, the core liberal arts curriculum, a dress code, Saturday morning classes, and weekly school meetings. A major reason for our strength right now is we all seem to understand and embrace what Suffield is about.Headmaster Charlie Cahn
