MacLachlan’s academic record is superb and our results come from our expectation that every student focuses on achieving their best. Our experience is that students rise to challenges and embrace success when they are given the resources, attention and opportunity. Our students are provided all of these and more.
Our Upper School is a dynamic, small and inclusive community where students are accepted for who they are and where teachers guide and facilitate learning by creating real-world connections. In small classes, teachers and students get to know each other well, providing opportunities to go above and beyond by delivering unique programs, activities, enrichment opportunities, individualized guidance and support to provide a highly personal and engaging experience.
Just as colleges and universities have embraced innovation and active learning environments, MacLachlan has transformed traditional classrooms into creative hubs that motivate critical thinking and collaboration. These active learning classrooms enable students and teachers to work in partnership to connect existing knowledge to new thinking.
MacLachlan students are also afforded the opportunity to develop skills that transcend academics. Leadership, character development, community outreach, outdoor education and international service trips are an integral part of their learning experience and development into thoughtful and confident well-rounded individuals.
