A great education begins in the classroom, but it doesn’t end there. There are so many ways to be a part of the Maret student community!
Maret’s student newspaper covers topics of interest to the School community. Woodley Leaves also reports on the lDC community, the nation, and the world. The newspaper strives to inform and entertain, to offer opinion and investigative reporting, and to deliver engaging content in a modern, professional style.
Nationally recognized as a leading independent school publication, Maret Literary and Visual Arts Magazine showcases poetry, prose, photography, and illustration by our talented upper school students.
Maret's InLight Magazine is an entirely student-run social justice publication that focuses on generating change and catalyzing dialogue about important topics such as diversity, equity, inclusion, race relations, and identity in our school community.
Middle School Student Council promotes student voice and decision-making and deepens student engagement in all aspects of school life. Representatives—selected from each grade level, affinity group, and house—develop leadership and accountability skills while identifying and discussing key issues, communicating with their constituencies, and planning assemblies.
Upper School Student Council is composed of 15 students—three student body representatives and three grade representatives. Elections are held in May (for tenth-twelfth grades) and September (for ninth grade) to decide membership. Student Council meets for an hour each Wednesday and follows an agenda set by its members. Student Council leaders are asked to help with a range of school and student-run activities and events (i.e. Admissions Open Houses, dances, interviews, Cafeteria Appreciation Day, etc.). They also surface and process student issues, acting as a critical liaison between students and the faculty and administration.
