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
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.
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!
