History

“We’ve come a long way, baby”…or have we? Check out the newly republished and updated Janney Days. Written in 2001 by Jeanne Beck Hanrahan and Ginny Callanen, the book covers the history of our school reflected in the events of the day since its beginnings in 1925, with interviews of and reflections from alumni. Anita Seline continues this exploration in the next chapter of our beloved school, including more interviews and reflections and many beautiful photographs.
