Graduation is a time when our entire community comes together to celebrate a momentous occasion. The ceremony represents the culmination of each graduate’s journey of learning while at Studio.
It is an opportunity for graduating students, their parents, and the school community to recognize and support their accomplishments. This special event includes an impressive formal presentation of speeches by the graduates, a musical celebration performed by the Studio Chorus, and the traditional conferring of diplomas, followed by refreshments and dancing. Graduation is an inspiring evening to be experienced and remembered.
Secondary School and Beyond
Once our students enter the Middle School, we begin to think about what lies ahead for each of them. Head of School, Janet C. Rotter, the teachers, and staff, work very closely with each student and their family to help them define what they are looking for in a high school program, decide which schools to apply to, and to guide them through the application and selection process. Ms. Rotter, who has vast experience and knowledge of the various public and private high schools throughout the city, meets individually with each student and their family to consider the options.
Studio graduates are mature, poised, self-confident individuals with a high degree of self-motivation and very high standards. Original and independent thinkers who understand that, in the words of an alumnus “determination and perseverance help us reach our goals…the possibilities are limitless,” they leave Studio with a zest for life and a thirst for knowledge. Because of these qualities, and their high academic performance, Studio graduates are sought out by and accepted into excellent public and private high schools throughout the city each year.
