Violets Strut the Runway for Charity

In 2007, just one year after Marlborough students established what is now known as the Violets’ Giving Circle (VGC), the members of the Circle put on the group’s first fashion show to raise money to grant to Los Angeles-based organizations. The event has expanded considerably since then, Violets’ Giving Circle advisor Nadia Hopper said.

Students Explore Science Outside the Classroom

Many Marlborough students have gone beyond the classroom with independent science projects like creating natural filtration systems, testing phytoplankton and writing textbooks. Students are able to pursue their interest in science not taught in the classroom with the help of a teacher supervisor but without the pressure of receiving credit for their work. Among these students are Talia ’16 and Kate ’16, Alex ’18, and Nicki ’16.
