(In celebration of the Fairhaven School Class of 2015, we will be posting their graduation theses in this space. Successful candidates have written and defended theses in response to the following statement:
Fairhaven School awards a diploma to students who can defend the following thesis to the satisfaction of the Diploma Committee: My experiences while enrolled at Fairhaven have enabled me to develop the problem-solving skills, the adaptability, and the abilities needed to function independently and responsibly in the world that I am about to enter.
This year’s candidates defended their theses to a committee of staff members from Sudbury Valley School in Framingham, MA, Clearwater School in Bothell, WA, and Hudson Valley Sudbury School in Kingston, NY.)
Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion. – Martha Graham
My passion is ballet, and I am a dancer. Dance is movement, structure and artistry, and I am each of those things as well. Dance is also my Fairhaven School education; I have mentally and physically danced my way through my life.
