Welcome to the 2014-2015 School Year, Seniors and Parents!

It is with great excitement that I welcome you back, with a new program designed to tap into students' strengths in theater, drama and the arts!


This year, we have a new theatre room! Students will be learning the history of the theater, elements of the theatre, and applied techniques in performance. We will do work with improvisation and skits, and will put on performances in the auditorium. This year, we will be partnered with Lincoln Center for the Arts. A teaching artist will be coming into class to work with the students, in addition to bringing exciting programs to the school, and having students travel to Manhattan to view performances at Lincoln Center. As we add to the program, I will keep you updated. Here's to a great school year that will lead to memorable and enriching experiences for our senior students!
