Wyoming Seminary is committed to teaching more than the basic academic subjects. Because children and young people today are faced with more complex issues at home, in school and in the world at large, Sem has developed a program to help them learn to work well together, to understand cultural differences, and to develop their sense of ethics and fair play.
In the 1999-2000 school year, the Lower School introduced a new tradition: R&R (Respect and Responsibility) Day. Held three times a year, R&R Day brings middle-school students together with primary children to socialize, build new friendships and develop a sense of school community and regard for others. The classes also use the occasion to participate in year-long community service projects which they have chosen themselves.
