ISP的电影

Participating in middle school and high school productions taught me so much about empathy and creative expression, 随着年龄的增长, I realized how much those skills in particular prepared me for leadership in the Latin community and beyond.

When students are conscious and proactive about learning, it provokes a more personal response to engaging with the material.

看到星星

The upper school 推进d 代理公司 class performed the play “Silent Sky” by Lauren Gunderson during the 2018-19 school year. This true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, whose quest to measure the distance of stars begins at Harvard Observatory and ends up changing our understanding of the universe.

推进d 代理公司 is made up of juniors and seniors who have taken classes in the upper school acting curriculum. The course culminates in a production fully produced and managed by students. With the rehearsal process embedded into class time throughout the semester, it allows the cast and crew to delve deeper into the play, spending more time on script and character analysis, 整体建设和戏剧创作, while also providing students opportunities to oversee behind-the-scenes work like costume and makeup design.

新太阳城展示学生和教师的艺术 & 员工、校友和专业艺术家.

One of the reasons why theater is so important is that it teaches empathy and presentation skills, and I found myself applying both to my schoolwork outside of the shows.
