Dr. Elizabeth Norton '01

Not that long ago, Elizabeth Norton considered herself a steadfast, lifelong New Englander. She grew up in Campton, New Hampshire, graduated from Holderness School and Dartmouth College, and went on to earn a PhD from Tufts University and complete postdoctoral training at MIT. Among her favorite things, she lists New England mountains and the Red Sox. But when Northwestern University offered her a job as an assistant professor and research lab leader, she headed west, carrying with her some lessons learned during her days at Holderness.

Excellent Effort and Honor Roll Fall 2021

The Honor Roll recognizes and commends outstanding achievement and effort in the academic program. Holderness School recognizes that each student's growth and progress is complex. Quarterly comments written by faculty better reflect the unique path traveled by each student, and the Honor Roll and Effort Honor Roll are simplified but significant markers of the engagement of our students in the most recent marking interval.

Designed by architect Evan Mullen ‘00, the lodge features dedicated space for alpine ski racing and training and includes ample gear storage, video review rooms, coaches’ offices, and ski tuning rooms.
