Tech Director Tye Campbell teamed with Finalsite founder and CEO, Jon Moser, at the recent Finalsite conference held at Avon Old Farms School in Connecticut to talk about the importance of data integration. Key to the presentation was the discussion of how to set up a single source system that feeds to the myriad disparate databases found in schools. Far Hills was the example used as a model on how to set up and run an efficient data integration system.

15 students represented Far Hills and had a strong showing at the recent MathLeague.org competition where 120 students from 15 school demonstrated their math skills at the challenging contest.
