On behalf of the faculty, staff, and, most of all, the students, I thank you for your interest in our Upper School. Ours is a dynamic and challenging learning environment promoting growth in scholarship, breadth of interests, citizenship, and lasting values. Furthermore, these mission-based qualities are all pursued with a profound sense of mutual respect and kindness. As you peruse our Upper School tabs and pages, I am confident that these quests and qualities will stand out for you.
We designed our website for ease of navigation, allowing you to explore the details of our diverse and outstanding programs. I urge you to pay particular attention to our teachers, the people behind those programs and our students, the people within those programs. TVS Upper School teachers are principled and compassionate scholars. Masters in their respective disciplines, they teach the “right way” of doing things while also demonstrating a great appreciation for the total student experience in a challenging independent school. TVS Upper School students are concurrently relentless and kind. An Upper School Trojan is unyielding in his or her pursuit of excellence whether in academics, arts, athletics, or community service. This determination is constantly accompanied by unequivocal support for peers. Our students want to conquer challenge, and cheer and support others as they do the same.
Thank you again for your interest in us. Enjoy your visit to our site, and please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
Dr. John O'Reilly
Head of Upper School
