Zealand Shannon, Class of 2010, has come a long way since he served as the announcer at the IDS Student-Faculty Sports Challenge! Shannon is a professional play-by-play announcer and can be heard on ESPN. Corbett Prep/IDS "puts the environment in place to give kids chances to grow," he says.
As we reflect on the past year, it is always our hope that at Corbett Prep, our families know that we value every moment with every student. Our focus is to ensure that every child is visible, cared about, and challenged to embrace academic excellence moving forward to meet and exceed the individual's needs and levels. In addition, embedded in learning are opportunities and lessons designed to develop wisdom, mindfulness, self-reflection, and a lifelong learning mentality. We also want our students to experience the joy of giving to others and contributing to the greater community.
