Final exams back at Dana after two years

During the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years, Dana Hall did not hold any schoolwide final exams due to the Covid pandemic. However, this year as things tend to become normal again, the school resumed final exams. The final exams are being held in the Shipley Center from May 31 to June 2, with two exams scheduled each day. All final exams and projects are ten percent of the grade of all three trimesters. 

According to Cindy Welch, Assistant Director of the Upper School, the final exams this year are quite similar to the ones before Covid. 

May Gong ‘24 says that she has been preparing for her upcoming chem and math finals this week, but she still has many tasks to complete in addition to reviewing, such as packing up her dorm and making travel plans for home as an international boarding student. “I haven’t taken finals in such a long time that I can’t even remember what it’s like to have to review for a whole year of content,” says May.

Ms. Welch advised students that they should prioritize “getting a good night’s sleep, practicing not just looking at the questions, doing the best in preparation and the day of, take it easy and just make sure you are on time in the Shipley Center!”
