毅力 & 格蕾丝, More Than a Motto

These words define and distinguish Westminster School. They represent a tradition, 一种文化, 一种态度, 一个愿望, a way of life for our students and faculty, an advantage for our graduates.
 
毅力是学生为达到我们对学业的高期望而付出的努力, 皇冠有钱手机app, and community involvement. 格蕾丝说的是他们以慷慨的精神来协商这些责任的方式, good manners and respect for all. 毅力和优雅的独特而有力的结合是威斯敏斯特人成功的原因, 不仅在这里, but also later in life. 
 
Derived from our motto 美德与美德, "grit and grace" encapsulates in one phrase our culture, 我们的承诺, a commitment to ourselves and others. 威斯敏斯特的学生和教师追求卓越和谦逊, personal success – and service to others, lofty goals – and common human decency. 将优雅的道德与坚毅的竞争和努力相结合, 威斯敏斯特鼓励学生测试自己能力的极限, to try something new, and to win and lose with grace.
 
在勇气与优雅相结合的地方,在卓越与机遇相遇的地方,几乎一切皆有可能.

  • The Move to Simsbury

    In 1900, as enrollment increased, Mr. 库欣将学校搬到了康涅狄格州希姆斯伯里的现址. The move to Simsbury provided more land, which had been donated through a trustee of the school, Arthur M. Dodge, a member of an old Hartford family. 威廉姆斯山, the site of the school, offered more than 230 acres, with commanding views of the Farmington River. 辛姆斯伯里的地理位置也为学生提供前往纽约和波士顿的火车服务, a boon to families from those areas.
     
    Mr. Cushing remained as headmaster until his death in 1921. 除了他的教育理念,他还给学校留下了鼓舞人心的校训. 库欣家族的纹章上刻有拉丁文格言“美德和神圣的恩典”。, which is translated liberally as “grit and grace.”
