Grant Lichtman writes about our School Sabot at Stonypoint

Grant Lichtman an educator, administrator and now an educational blogger,  visited our school a few weeks ago.
He was very excited by what he saw and wrote a post in his blog regarding our mission, focus and development throughout the years. It is  definitely worth reading.
As he toured he was curious, engaged in the discussion and obviously impressed. Please take a look at this post.

This is the first paragraph of his biography as posted in his blog called Learning Pond.
For almost 14 years, I have been involved with independent school education, as trustee, chief of finance and operations, teacher, parent, and volunteer at Francis Parker School in San Diego, one of the largest independent schools in the United States.

I have been either directly responsible for, or intimately involved in, strategic planning, program design, global education, development, marketing, educational technology, admissions and financial aid, benchmarking and trend analyses, and risk management.

 I have consulted on 21st Century curriculum development, written, and given talks to educational and industry groups, and had the honor of teaching a version of my Falconer seminar in strategic and creational thinking to West Point cadets.

Each year I lead a two-week trip in experiential immersion for students to the Philippines where our goal is to understand and experience the fact that 4 billion people in the world live on less than $2 a day.
