Recently grade 3 students visited The Metropolitan Museum of Art. This visit supports a case study of the historic Western African Kingdom of Benin. This is a comparative study alongside explorations of the Lenni-Lenape of North America and later the Dutch in Europe from the 15th through 17th centuries.

Fourth graders set out to participate in the 20th annual “A Day in the Life of the Hudson,” joining over 5,000 students and scientists at 90 sites up and down the Hudson River, from Troy Dam to New York Harbor, collectively exploring and gathering data from the river, in real time. 

Cross-curricular learning unfolds between seventh grade english students and French teacher and cultural scholar, Ms. Vincenot-Dash. She visited with the english students to share her interpretation of The Necklace, a short story originally written in French by Guy de Maupassant in 1884.

One of the primary goals of technology classes at St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's is to integrate technology instruction into the classroom curriculum. The second grade does a year-long study of the seven continents, their geography, native animals as well as the cultures of the people who live there. Ms. Blake has aligned her curriculum to include technologies from around the world.

There are many different people who help students become lifelong readers. A child’s parents, teachers, and peers all contribute to that child’s life of reading through bedtime stories, the first book read independently, conversations about favorite books, and other milestones on the journey to shaping a life-long love of literature. But one very important step in the life of a young reader happens right here in the C. V. Starr Library at St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s.
