Peak Hosts Intern from Scarsdale Alternative School
For a second consecutive year, Peak is hosting an intern from the Scarsdale Alternative School (A-School) in Scarsdale, New York. Eliza Auchincloss, a senior at the A-School, will join the Peak community from May 9-27 as part of her senior project. In her role as in intern, Eliza will help Peak map out the Senior Year and graduation plans for our first graduating class next year in Spring of 2017. She plans to survey and interview students, teachers, and parents about building strong community in a small school environment. Eliza will also help outline the first Peak graduation,scheduled for Thursday, May 25, 2017, making suggestions about everything from caps and gowns to voting on a speaker.
To get to know the Peak class of 2017, Eliza joined many students from that first graduating class on a college campus tour in California. Along with six students and two teachers, Eliza flew to California and drove down the coast from San Francisco to South of Los Angeles, looking at more than fifteen college campuses before driving East through three national parks.
