I look forward to working with you as we immerse ourselves in these disciplines and understand how interconnected and relevant Math and Science are to our lives, as captured in the words of Ada Lovelace, “Mathematical science shows what is. It is the language of unseen relations between things. But to use and apply that language, we must be able to fully appreciate, to feel, to seize the unseen, the unconscious.”

Mr. Sean Striefsky
  • Name : Mr. Sean Striefsky
  • Subjects : Upper School Social Studies
  • Welcome Message : "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it." - George Santayana This most famous quote is recited in nearly every social studies course around the world, year after year, and with (mostly) good reason. However, social studies are not merely learned to avoid catastrophe but rather to pass on our shared experience as a species and to recount both the negative and positive things that have occured. It's important that we learn history and learn from history but furthermore that we don't let past mistakes hinder advancement in the future. So let's work hard to learn about our history in order to help us create a brighter future!
