Jim Iska & Nicholas Senn High School

“…the Senn experience provides students a unique foundation for living, working, thriving, and leading,” Jim Iska, Photographer

Project Overview

The tremendous diversity of Senn is what many students cited to me as one of their proudest features of their school. Forming personal bonds and friendships with people coming from vastly different cultures and interests, (thanks to the addition of the IB program and Senn Arts), the Senn experience provides students a unique foundation for living, working, thriving, and leading in an ever diverse and changing world. 

Looking back on my involvement at Senn over the past year, I can’t help being struck by the notion that these students are our future, and that our future is in good hands. 

As it has for over a century, Senn stands at the forefront of progressive education. Ella Flagg Young would be proud.
