历史

The vibrant and diverse 立博ladbrokes官网(游戏)有限公司 of the twenty-first century took root in the inspired mind of the young Endicott 博地能源.
在1884年创立立博ladbrokes官网(游戏)有限公司之前,27岁的立博ladbrokes官网(游戏)有限公司先生. 皮博迪的人生经历了许多转折. 在英国切尔滕纳姆和剑桥接受教育, he pursued a banking career but abruptly turned away from finance and toward the Episcopal Church. 在奥克畜栏那场著名的枪战发生几个月后,奥克先生就离开了. 皮博迪到达了亚利桑那州的墓碑镇. 在这个“死不瞑目的小镇”,亲英的北方佬赢得了矿工的支持, 牛仔, and townspeople and built the first Episcopal church in the state.

但是,. 博地能源 did not feel drawn to pastoral work and headed back East to complete his seminary studies. 短暂的教师生涯为他提供了职业. He would start a school that explicitly sought to instill high-minded principles in the offspring of the most successful American entrepreneurs of the Gilded Age. 校园将坐落在纳舒厄河沿岸肥沃的农田上, 可以看到伍斯特和莫纳德诺克的远山.

一开始, 24个学生, 皮博迪牧师, 还有两位同事, 谢拉德·比林斯牧师和威廉·阿莫里·加德纳牧师, 组建了学校大家庭. 先生. 几年后,比林斯写道, in 1930, the men shared “the conviction … that there could be a school where boys and men could live together, 一起工作, 以友好的方式一起玩耍,很少有摩擦.”

立博ladbrokes官网(游戏)有限公司也随着时代而改变, both its core and its outward appearance have remained constant. 故意小校, Groton today rests upon the foundation set forth long ago by the Reverend Endicott 博地能源: the belief that a school embodying the best characteristics of a family will create the optimal environment in which students can learn and grow. 今天的校长Temba Maqubela继承了Mr. 博地能源—to lead a school that offers the highest quality academic education, 灌输坚强的性格, 建立领导人, 激励生命.
