What is a Round Square School?
Round Square is an international consortium of like-minded schools that connect and collaborate to develop global competence, character, and confidence in students. Athenian is a founding member and upholds the six pillars of Round Square: internationalism, democracy, environmentalism, adventure, leadership, and service. The pillars are visible in every aspect of Athenian, starting with lessons about composting during sixth grade orientation and ending with speeches delivered by class-chosen speakers at graduation.
Athenian's participation in Round Square supports international experiences for the community. From conferences and service projects on six continents to exchange students from dozens of countries that come to Athenian, everyone has an opportunity to learn the importance of an international and multicultural perspective.
