Mark Shpall '86 Announced as new Head of School at de Toledo
Mark Shpall '86 was announced as the new Head of School of de Toledo High School, effective July 1, 2018. During this upcoming school year, Mark will serve as Head of School Designate, working closely with the current Head of School to develop a smooth transition. Mark was chosen from a national pool of candidates and was appointed with the enthusiastic support from the search committee.
Mark was a founding faculty member of de Toldeo High School and has served its community tirelessly ever since. Throughout his career at de Toledo, he has held numerous positions: AP Government Teacher, 11/12 Grade Dean, Director of Community Programming, Coordinator of CAIS/WASC Accreditation, Dean of Students, and many more.
Mark earned his BA from UC Santa Barbara, his JD from USC, and his MA in Education from Pepperdine. A dedicated Webb alumnus, he has served as a reunion chair and class agent for many years. He also spoke at Sophomore Career Evening in 2016.
While the tickets to see the upcoming production of Les Misérables sold out in a matter of minutes, The Webb Schools is pleased to announce a livestream of the Friday May 18th performance will be available on the school's website and Facebook page. The performance will begin at 7:00pm PDT.
Webb swimmers finished their 2018 season in championship style last week. The rundown: two days, two proud coaches (Ken Rosenfeld & Tom Jurczak), seven broken/re-broken school records, and one Vivian Webb CIF champion (the first individual swimming CIF champion in VWS history)!
When some colleges are reporting less than a 5% admit rate (Harvard & Stanford) and many others remain in the single digits, it’s good to know that no matter how tough things get Webb students are well prepared for the challenge. Once again, our students beat the odds. The members of this year’s graduating class are to be congratulated for admission into some of the most sought-after colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad. We saw 100% of the Class of 2018 admitted to a selective four-year college or university—90% will be attending a college ranked in the top 10% in the nation.
