The HonorRoll 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 HonorRoll and Effort HonorRoll are simplified but significant markers of the engagement of our students in the most recent marking interval.
Congratulations to our fourth quarter 2019-20 Honor and High Honor students! High Honors is a distinction earned by having a 90 percent average or better, with no grade below a B, and all effort grades of good or excellent. Honor Roll is a distinction earned by having an 85 percent average or better, with no grade below a B-, and all effort grades of good or excellent.

Today, we’re meeting Jiabao Mei, the school’s Mandarin teacher. A native of Guangzhou, China, Jiabao just completed her first year of teaching at Holderness - and she's the first native Mandarin speaker to ever teach at the school. Here, we ask Jiabao about the challenges of learning a new language, the importance of understanding other cultures, and how she found a home in the Holderness community.
