The House system

The house system is a traditional feature of schools in England and has been adapted in the United States. The school is divided into subunits called "houses" and each student is allocated to one house at the moment of enrollment. Since this was our first year to participate, we hosted a "house reveal" party at the beginning of the year. The students will remain in the same house for the duration of their time at our school.

Our house names are Swahili words for the virtues we want our students to embrace. Each house is identified by its own symbol, logo, and color.

First House reveal

At the beginning of the 2018-19 year we hosted a "House Reveal" where students found out which house they would belong to. The students were divided into their groups and then given cupcakes. The inside of the cupcake revealed the color of their house.
