Everyone knows that dogs are a big part of the culture at Archer, but did you know that this tradition dates back to the founding of the school? Founder Dr. Diana Meehan first introduced the practice of teachers bringing their dogs to school because she herself loves dogs. According to Ms. Servello, dogs are as much of a part of the Archer lifestyle as the uniform is.
Below are just a few of the many dogs on campus with of course, their wonderful owners that we know as our teachers! Click on an image to begin the slideshow.
