Headmaster Letter

Dear North Phoenix Prep Families,

We have a short but action-packed week ahead of us! As we launch into it with vigor, allow me to direct your attention to a brief article written by a friend of mine, Dr. Stephen Shipp. The article is titled, " Today's Schools Should Emulate the Education that Produced Abraham Lincoln ." Here's a brief snippet from the article to whet your appetites:

"Our contemporary notions of practical education have little regard for things that cannot be counted, so it has trouble teaching us what is worthy of our full energies. But those things that are not easily counted are exactly the sorts of things that defined Lincoln—wit and wisdom, humility and patience, eloquence and unbending humanity.
Lincoln modeled his self-education on the education of the schoolhouse. Maybe we should model our schoolhouses on his self-education."
With Devotion,

Headmaster Weinhold
12th Grade Drama

The second semester Senior drama students invite you to travel back to 1800s England for a story of elite women, politics, and an aged scandal.

In our performance of An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde we will depict an action packed day that ranges from feelings of love to claims of corruption. Some things never change!

Please join us for a comedic portrayal of relatable events that could use a laugh.

The performance is located in our very own MPR on May 2nd at 7pm and admittance is only $5. See you and your family there!
Take the credit!
