Humans of Archer

Dr. Travis Nesbitt, World Languages Dept. Chair

“As I was finishing up my Ph.D. program at UCLA and realizing more and more that I wanted to return to secondary teaching, I had a fortuitous dinner conversation with Kathleen Tundermann Niles, an Archer teacher who went to Yale with my husband. Archer has been a place of self-discovery, growth, and fulfillment for me. Being surrounded by smart, dedicated, and masterful teachers and inquisitive, kind, and hard-working students provides constant inspiration. Having been given the room and support to grow, I have been able to revamp the 9th and 10th grade history curricula, focus on building community and culture as Dean of Students, and now contribute to the strengthening of our World Language program.”
I've learned how to be a more effective educator and also learned more about the conditions and culture that make Archer such a special learning environment.
The Archer School for Girls admits students of any race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin, sexual orientation or other legally protected status to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin, sexual orientation or other legally protected status in its hiring or in the administration of its educational policies and programs, admissions policies, financial aid programs or other school-administered programs. 

The Archer School for Girls’ mission is to educate students in an environment specifically designed for girls. As such, the school will consider any candidate for admission who identifies as a girl. Once admitted to Archer, all students in good academic standing who abide by Archer’s code of conduct and who meet requirements for graduation will be eligible to receive an Archer diploma, regardless of any change in sexual identity or other legally protected status.
