Inspiring Intellectual and Creative Confidence
PreK4 students hop from one square to another while their partners call out commands in technology class – an active lesson that helps them learn problem-solving skills for coding applications. In PE, students experience their own summer Olympics, with table tennis games, "swim" races on scooters, and gymnastic challenges. Music classes spill outside on beautiful days as students bring their instruments to the music deck to practice.
Specials classes at Corbett Prep immerse students in an array of classes designed to spark new interests, tap in to students' multiple intelligences, and create a mindset of infinite possibilities.
Research continues to support that to accelerate the learning process for students, schools need to make meaningful connections with music, art, dance, drama, physical education, international languages, STEAM, and technology.
Our Specials staff adds joy, imagination, creativity, energy, and confidence to the lives of our students every day.

We found new ways to preserve beloved traditions, reimagined how learning could look outside of the classroom and delighted in rare chances to say hello in person. As we say goodbye to our eighth graders and look ahead to new opportunities, we leave you with this positive reminder from our Middle School Thespians.
