Please take a special moment to celebrate yourself, students, and our community of families. This school year was no ordinary year, full of unprecedented events and more. Before the school year wraps up, provide yourself and students opportunities to celebrate, appreciate the great times, and close with optimism.

    Julian Reeve Business Management, Services & Risk Management

    Finding a perfectionist that isn’t in some way proud to be one is like finding out you’ve won $100 million on the lottery. It’s not unheard of, but it’s rare! Why?

For the most part, they’re right! Numerous studies have shown that perfectionists outperform non-perfectionists, and there is an increasing belief that society’s largely negative portrayal of perfectionism now requires an update. But while these positive qualities of perfectionism continue to garner support, the negative aspects must not be ignored.
