Dr. Priscilla Sands recently returned to Penn campus and shared some of her current work challenges as President of Springside Chestnut Hill Academy. Through their Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership, the Academy seeks to infuse strands of Communication, Engineering/New Media, Entrepreneurship, Ethics, Global Immersion, Leadership, and Statistics across the Pre-K to 12 experience. As Priscilla notes, "We can no longer afford to educate students with a model rooted in the last century. The tenets of entrepreneurial leadership propel us to move boldly in a new direction, with a unique product that is rich in flavor, creativity, and innovation." Education Week recently included Springside Chestnut Hill in their national list of “35 High Schools Worth Visiting.” More about the Center’s work can be found at www.sch.org/CEL.
