The Importance of History
Knowing the importance of history, Birchwood has learned from elements of education that helped produce great scientists, mathematicians, historians, and writers. Great education is not a mystery nor is it a new phenomenon. History shows us recurring themes of good education. It teaches us how masters learned their subject matter and made significant contributions to their discipline.
