In January 2017, Ranney School announced the hire of Dr. Gregory Martin as new Upper School Head and Assistant Head of School for Academics, beginning July 1, 2017. The hire aligns with the school’s strategic academic initiatives to grow its innovative programs in Global Studies, STEAM, and more. Initiatives include expanded course offerings in these three areas through experiential learning opportunities and an online consortium that will allow students to pursue specialized subjects while still being advised by Ranney’s expert faculty members (more than 65% have advanced degrees).
The Class of 2019 will be able to earn specialized diplomas in Global Studies and STEAM. In addition, the school is launching a ninth-grade Physics First track, aimed at enhancing students’ scientific literacy before they move into Biology and Chemistry, and building a Humanities Block that allows for writing-intensive, cross-disciplinary instruction in Middle School Literature and Social Studies.
