The start of the new school year brings with it a change in leadership for the middle school. Meet Jamila Steward—she's a ball of energy bursting with ideas with 23 years of experience. She brings with her a background in student growth and development. Jamila is committed to child-centered education, where innovation and 21st-century skills are taught and exercised.
As an educator and a psychotherapist, Jamila understands students' social and emotional well-being is essential, especially during these times. She's a hands-on leader who looks forward to being fully integrated into the classrooms and happenings of our middle school community.
Having a college visit can be an important part of the decision-making process. It is ideal to meet a college recruit and get a sense of the campus before applying. At the same time, the school can get to know the student in a way that goes beyond the paperwork.
This week Oakland University visited the Upper School to share what attending could mean for their future. Students had an opportunity to ask questions and make a connection with the admissions staff.
