Celebrating Founders Day

A mere 49 years ago, The Wallace O’Neal Day School opened to serve students in grades 4-6. The official date is September 7, 1971 but realistically, one can argue that O’Neal’s Founders Day should be celebrated “the day after Labor Day” – no matter the date.  As we approach 50 years of educating students in the Sandhills, there is stronger reflection on the School’s inception. But even more so, the journey this institution has taken is remarkable. It has managed to hang on to specific ideals that sets O’Neal apart, while staying abreast of the latest breakthroughs in education to provide the best for its students.

Please take a look at this special video, produced by Director of Student Life Lulu Brase, addressing “Why O’Neal?” as well as a brief history on O’Neal’s first days from O’Neal’s first headmaster, Bob Haarlow.
