Culture Week

Culture Week

Our Culture Weeks are an opportunity for our whole school to come together around the foundational habits that we all share, and that make Great Hearts Irving unique—the cardinal virtues. The goal of our Culture Weeks is for our students and faculty to join together once a quarter with their House members across all grade levels, and wonder together about one of the cardinal virtues and how we can strive to exemplify that virtue in our lives at school and beyond.
