Student Commons

The student commons is space dedicated for student use. Other meetings and events that do not involve students are limited in this room. It is often used for breakout space for class or physical exam learning and practice. In addition, student organization, clubs, and interest groups can reserve the space for meetings and events. Other times, you’ll find the space being used by students to study or even relax. Some students take a nap, play the piano, or a compete in a pick-up game of ping pong. One of our favorite events at the school is a ping pong tournament that students organize each year to raise money for the Caroline Osborne Memorial Scholarship Fund. And I have to say, it really is nice that because we have such a small class, we can all just fit into the space and hang out together. It's a pretty special thing that we get to do.
