Headmaster Letter

We had a great turnout for Curriculum night!

Student volunteers handed out schedules
 and programs. Thank you students!

Dear North Phoenix Prep Families,

Thanks to everyone who joined us for curriculum night!  It was so great to engage in fellowship and community together, and to give our families a glimpse of the transformative education that our students experience on a daily basis.

Curriculum night was just one of several special events that occurred last week.  We also hosted a college professor who taught a special stage fighting workshop for our upper-level drama classes!  In addition, our whole community participated in the Great Hearts flash drive for victims of Hurricane Harvey.  Thanks so much to all who pitched in and helped out.  It seems that word got out about this effort & we made the news!

I'm looking forward to another great week at North Phoenix Prep.  Don't forget that we have Picture Day on Wednesday the 13th.  Please also keep an eye out for information regarding advance notices and Jupiter Grades.

With Devotion,
Headmaster Weinhold

Musical instruments aren’t just for song and dance; they can tell us stories of musical journeys across the globe throughout human history. As NPX 8th Grade students explore MIM’s five major Geographic Galleries,
objects on display reveal their histories as well as the daily lives of people throughout the world.
