## Arbor School Leadership Series

Written by Kit Hawkins, Founder and Director of the Arbor School of Arts & Sciences, in Arbor's 25th year, The Idea of Arbor School is an "attempt to capture a real place and the truth of a school’s evolutionary process. [It is] an attempt to stand in contrast to all the negative press about schools and point to what has been done and might be done elsewhere."
