Overview

Overview

Hawken School says

Founded in 1915, Hawken School is an independent, college preparatory day school serving approximately 950 students in preschool through grade 12. The School's mission still reflects the words of James A. Hawken, "That the better self shall prevail, and each generation introduce its successor to a higher plane of life." Hawken offers capable and committed students a learning environment that is coeducational, pluralistic, and nonsectarian. Hawken strives to develop the character, mind, and body of its students to the highest degree possible. This development comes from exploration, analysis, and practice across a broad range of human thought and endeavor extending from the humanities, arts, mathematics, and science to athletics and community service. Through this process Hawken provides its students with perspective: kinship with the past, a grasp of the present, and responsibility toward the future.
