  • Spring Musical - The Pirates of the Penzance

    The Pirates of Penzance is a pure joy from start to finish. When putting this show together, I wanted the audience to have as much fun as the cast. To that end, you will be surrounded by pirates, maidens and policemen throughout the evening. It’s a first-rate opportunity to join a rollicking band of pirates - so by all means feel free to climb aboard and join in with the silliness! Raise your pirate glass, make the most of fleeting leisure, slap your chest and sing – I guarantee it will make you more than merry.

  • Class of 2019

    Members of the Class of 2019 faced tremendous competition this year as they applied to colleges and universities across the country and around the world. While each felt the stress of the selective admission process, our seniors proved once again that good character coupled with a dedication to your studies really pays off.
     
    In 2019 we saw 100 percent of the graduating class admitted to a selective four-year college or university—90 percent will attend a college ranked in the top 10 percent in the nation. On average each of our students applied to eight colleges and was admitted to four or more of them.
     
    We congratulate members of the Class of 2019 for their amazing college choices and wish them well on the adventures ahead!
