The Role of a Harkness Teacher

Harkness Teachers are not professors.  They present information, and don’t tell students what to think about it. They engineer learning experiences. They watch closely as students tackle problems. They provide feedback. They work hard to get students to pay attention not just to what they know but how to think. They get them to learn, think and speak for themselves, through critical input from- and for- others.

The Role of Staff

Staff members provide excellent services that ensure that The Lawrenceville School is functioning as efficiently as possible. From administrators to maintenance workers each staff member makes a significant contribution to The School in their specific expertise. 
Through House and Harkness, Lawrenceville challenges a diverse community of promising young people to lead lives of learning, integrity, and high purpose.  Our mission is to inspire the best in each to seek the best for all.
