Class of ‘23 Senior Rises “To the Top” in Athletics at Kew-Forest!

Monday, March 27, 2023
Dear Kew-Forest Community,
We are proud to share that senior Cairo Gordon-Somers-Archer was recently featured in the March 2023 issue of Forest Hills Living magazine (page 18) as well as online at
To read the feature in Forest Hills Living magazine, visit here.
To read the online feature and view more photos on, visit here.
The feature was penned by Ms. DeMartino, currently K-F’s Lower School PE Teacher and Assistant Athletic Director, who taught Cairo from 2010-2016 when he was enrolled in kindergarten through 5th grade.
For the past 13 years, Cairo has exemplified our School’s motto, Ad Summum, Latin for “to the top” as he continues to rise above every challenge that has come before him.
Thank you, Cairo, for letting us share your story with our Kew-Forest community.
