What is the PLC?

The Parents Leadership Council (PLC) provides insight and reflection on key strategic initiatives of the School as well as emerging topics of interest for families and their students.
The goal of the PLC is to better engage and inform our parent community. Each meeting will focus on an important area of school life at New Hampton or in education in general. Our parents will be asked to provide thoughtful feedback around the New Hampton experience and how we can take steps to improve our program offerings.
Thank you for your participation in the Parents Leadership Council.
