Corbett Prep's Middle School Thespian Troupe wrapped up a busy competition season filled with live theatre that challenged students to express themselves creatively, support one another as a team and demonstrate maturity and responsibility on and off stage.
Inspiring Intellectual and Creative Confidence
Kindergarteners program robots to maneuver their way through a town they built in the Tomlin Family Application Lab, a coding component to a unit on how communities function. In PE, students practice sportsmanship and teamwork and challenge themselves individually as they build skills, play games and try new activities inside two gyms, outside on two fields and down by the lake. Music classes have fun learning to scat like Ella Fitzgerald during their unit on jazz, and drama students giggle as they unleash their imaginations in improvisation exercises.
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, Spanish and STEAM.
Our Specials staff adds joy, imagination, creativity, energy, and confidence to the lives of our students every day.
Students who want a more in-depth experience in sports or the arts may wish to sign up for Community School for Sports or Community School of the Arts, which provide lessons and skill development after school and are open to students outside of Corbett Prep as well.
This proscenium theatre features retractable seating for up to 175 audience members, a permanent stage, new lights and sound and a curtain and rigging system that offer an improved experience during performances and professional development trainings.
In a year where nearly every aspect of school had to be re-imagined, Corbett Prep rose to the challenge. Enjoy this look back at the 2020-21 school year – the classes, the traditions and the Corbett Prep community.
Middle School Teachers Jim Vyverberg and Matt Melnick thought a new school mural would bring the eighth-grade together, teach art fundamentals, generate excitement and safely cultivate a sense of community.
Corbett Prep's Thespian Troupe has had an impressive start to the school year, applying its energy and creativity to revive live theatre at school and earning high rankings in competitions this fall. The students return to the stage Dec. 11 with their mainstage performance Yo, Vikings!
