People contain multitudes—and Don Conolly is certainly no exception. A member of Commonwealth’s history and classics departments since 2001, he would be content floating on a lake in absolute silence…or surrounded by rugby hooligans…or jamming with funk legends Rufus and Chaka Khan

Bullying Prevention and Intervention
At Commonwealth School, we expect that all members of our community will treat each other with civility and respect. Commonwealth aims to be a school that is free of bullying and any other verbal or physical misconduct that disrupts any student’s learning or undermines anyone’s sense of safety. Commonwealth School’s Bullying Prevention and Intervention Plan is published in response to the Massachusetts law against bullying and is an integral part of our efforts to promote learning and to prevent behavior that can impede the learning process. Our Plan spells out Commonwealth School’s comprehensive approach to addressing bullying, cyberbullying, and retaliation.
