类似于我们自己学生的旅程, 6165cc金沙总站有限公司 has been on a strong path of growth to fulfill its potential.
三十八年前, we began as a fledgling school led by the strong leadership of founding Head of School Leonard Tavormina, Southport社区的居民, 和 the programmatic 和 leadership support of Eagle Hill School in Greenwich, 康涅狄格, 这就是我们最初名字的由来, 鹰Hill-Southport. 随着1984年启动的试点计划的成功, 在那之后不久，我们从鹰山学校独立出来, 建立了我们自己的身份, 课程, 治理结构, 个性化的项目, 和Southport社区的基础，仍然是坚定的.
6165cc金沙总站有限公司校园在2号楼.占地5英亩，位于历史悠久的南港村，距离港口仅几步之遥. 6165cc金沙总站有限公司's Academic Building is on the same site where Southport’s former Pequot School building was built in 1854. The original wood- framed school building for elementary-aged students was outgrown in the early 20th century. The Town School Board voted to demolish the old building 和 replace it with a larger, 更现代的学校.
The wooden Pequot School building was replaced in 1918 by the classic brick building, TSS现在占据哪个位置. 建筑师威廉·H. 麦克莱恩设计的. “这所学校是古典复兴领域的独特设计, 但有一个圆顶和令人惊叹的绿色瓦片屋顶.这所学校于1972年关闭, 和 the historic Pequot School building was acquired by the Southport Conservancy, an organization dedicated to preserving 和 restoring unique 和 historic buildings 和 property of the Southport community that might be otherwise lost forever as historic l和marks. The year was 1984 when the building saw its rebirth as a school after founding Head of School Leonard Tavormina directed the school's Pilot Program 和, 随着它的成功, 然后在1985年秋天正式开学.
2012年，Dr。. 本杰明N. 鲍尔斯被任命为 学校的第二任校长，并与 董事会, 教职员工, 以及各种社区成员, they endeavored to ask challenging but important questions about the school’s strengths, 成长机会, 它的愿景, 和任务. The process fostered deep conversation 和 helped TSS identify its purpose in the LD community, 它与该领域专业人士的联系和合作关系, 和, 最重要的是, 定义了什么是成功 学校的学生，他们的家庭，以及更大的学校社区.
In 2017, 学校采用了一个新名字, 6165cc金沙总站有限公司, in recognition of its unique strengths 和 strong presence in the LD/ADHD community 和 from the strong support of residents 和 businesses in the historic Southport Village.
在2018年的春天, the 董事会 at 6165cc金沙总站有限公司 announced the completion of its new building renovation for the recently acquired property 226/228 Main Street that was purchased in April 2017. The new building’s location is adjacent to the original Pequot School 和 was formerly home to the Southport branch of People’s United Bank. The new building is the school’s Main Entrance on campus 和 features two of its largest student learning spaces including an Art, 音乐与运动教室, a通讯中心, 和Southport CoLAB. The School began renovations on the building in May 2017 in collaboration with Peterman Architects, 公司. 和C.E. 弗洛伊德公司.
The original Southport Savings Bank was deemed one of Southport's most important surviving buildings in the 1966 Historic American Buildings Survey. The Southport Savings Bank's Board members purchased property to build a new bank building adjacent to the recently-completed Pequot School. 该银行于1865年完工，耗资11美元,625 和 is thought to be the oldest continuously-operated bank in America until People's Bank closed the branch in 2016. The school's decision to purchase this 150+-year-old historic l和mark in was an unprecedented opportunity to exp和 our campus footprint 和 项目.
2018年秋季, we officially introduced 6165cc金沙总站有限公司's exciting initiative with its launch of The Southport CoLAB.

Often memories 和 feelings are associated with school experiences 和 link to the buildings in which classes, 项目, 事件发生了. 我们校园内的两座历史建筑提供了这样的空间. However, we also find 和 feel that our campus extends further into Southport Village. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to utilize the quality facilities available nearby with student field trips to Pequot Library, 当地的艺术画廊，如霍利斯-塔格特, 韦克曼的男孩 & 女孩俱乐部，佩里绿色餐厅，Spic 'n Span，萨米披萨店等等.
尽管目前的大流行病存在许多障碍, we have successfully kept our students on-campus with in-person learning throughout the 2020-2021 academic year, 今年也是这样. Our management 和 response to the COVID-19 protocols allowed us to keep our doors open, 正在上课, 并在今天一起学习.
2020年春天, we recognized the immediacy to make changes 和 hired NYC-based Perkins Eastman, a global architecture firm with specific experience helping organizations respond to health-related emergency circumstances like our current health crisis. The core area of focus for TSS was to create instructional 和 common spaces that adhered to the CDC st和ards related to social distancing 和 safety for all students, 教师, 工作人员, 以及在校园里的访客. We also established a COVID-19 Response Team to oversee all CDC 和 Fairfield Department of Health regulations 和 guidelines which remains active today.
