WHY A BOYS' SCHOOL
At some schools, the very things that make boys boys are considered frustrating problems to be overcome, not strengths to be embraced. Fenn is the exception.
Our program is designed to serve the specific needs of boys during the most critical years of their academic and personal development – grades four through nine. This is a time when, a growing body of research suggests, earlier maturation can give girls an advantage in the classroom, leaving boys less confident in their ability and undermining the joy of school.
At Fenn, everything we do is tailored to the nature and learning styles of boys. The school day offers ample opportunities to release their expansive energy. When gender-based social pressures are eliminated, they feel safe to explore the arts, throw themselves passionately into challenging academics, be kind and compassionate to one another, and value and respect the community.
