When you look at this picture you only get one perspective. You don’t know that it was 65°, the breeze was warm, I could smell the decomposing leaves and it was a much needed moment of silence and peace in the woods. Each student at Oliverian is like this picture. You have to be curious to find out what’s really going on. You have to be willing to consider that what you see on the surface and how you judge what you see is just one dimension. At Oliverian we try hard to see all the dimensions of a student, to help them consider all the dimensions of themselves. It’s not easy for them, or us… but it’s worth it.
