At the end of September, Harker middle school parents attended preview night, where students and teachers offered a glimpse into high school life.
Nan Nielsen, director of admission and financial aid, invited seniors and juniors to speak about their experiences and favorite aspects of Harker. Allika Walvekar, grade 12, talked about Harker’s Conservatory while others offered views on football, foreign languages, mathematics and forensics.
After a warm welcome from Chris Nikoloff, head of school, and Butch Keller, upper school head, parents and friends were invited to visit departments and learn about the various clubs and activities offered at Harker, which range from Global Empowerment and Outreach to the Harker Business Club to Tri-M Music Honor Society.
Afterward, a formal open house gave the public an opportunity to check out the school, and a chance to speak to teachers and students about the Harker experience. The next open houses will be held Nov. 7 at 11 a.m. and Dec. 2 at 6:30 p.m.
