Anyone who saw the School this spring will not recognize it this summer. For the big picture, this is what’s happening: the original school building, 52 East 62nd Street, stands completely gutted on the five floors between the Upper and Lower Gyms. We are in the final year of the five-stage physical transformation of Browning!

The Summer Buzzer, which can be viewed online by clicking here, is chock full of features focused on the School’s first Biodiversity Day, the Form II trip to Washington, D.C., Faculty Symposium, Graduation and the PA Spring Benefit.
