Headmaster Letter

Dear North Phoenix Prep Families,

We are entering a truly delightful season in the life of our school!  Soon we will have the pleasure of seeing our Juniors and Seniors perform Shakespeare plays--something to which I look forward each year.  I am always amazed to witness our students' outstanding displays of thespianism, and I am already looking forward to the performance this Thursday!

I am reminded that during a time when budget cutbacks have led many schools to cancel their fine arts programs, our Academy continues to provide a rich immersion in art, music, drama, and poetry for all our students.  Through the experience of performing a Shakespearean play, our students glean an appreciation for the subtle nuance and rich history of the English language; they learn a deeper empathy and a more sophisticated emotional landscape, and they acquire the skill of performative presentation.  Our students learn these things because Beauty, as much as Truth and Goodness, is an essential aim of our curriculum. We would no sooner eliminate the fine arts than we would math or science.

As we look ahead to our annual drama performances, our Cabinet of Curiosities show, and our Winter Concert, I hope that each of you is as excited as I am about this most wonderful time of the year!

With Devotion,
Headmaster Weinhold
