Suffield Academy continues to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and will continue to post active updates as more information becomes available.
American independent schools embrace an intentionally inefficient staffing model. The quality and volume of adult guidance make these experiences expensive. In our case more than 140 adults help only 410 students.
Yet Suffield’s magic rests in going beyond close focus on each student. It is the kind of attention paid to students and the culture of the school, about adults who are encouraging and nurturing.
