      FROM THE


        Each year, a large part of the Upper School
        experience is rooted in the exploration and
        mastery of our college preparatory
        curriculum.  This year was certainly no
        exception, as our Upper School faculty
        promoted scholarship and comprehension by
        creating a nurturing environment conducive
        to high achievement and advanced learning.

                                     Students were rewarded in abundance for their hard work
                                     and dedication to academics.  This year more than 120
                                     students were inducted into six honor societies.  Upper
                                     School students also worked on intricate projects including
                                     the WPS yearbook and school newspaper, both of which
                                     were designed, produced and managed by student groups.
                                     Worcester Prep competed in a wide variety of essay and
                                     oratorical contests, and the WPS Mock Trial, Robotics, and
                                     Computer Teams were all successful in regional and
                                     national competitions.

        The Arts were alive all throughout Worcester Prep during
        the school year, and one of the year’s true highlights was
        the impressive Upper School performance of The Addams
        Family.  The musical packed the Athletic and Performing
        Arts Center for two outstanding evenings and the hilarious
        musical turned out to be one of the most successful and
        popular WPS shows to date.  Along with our musical theatre
        program, many Upper School students were engaged in the
        arts by participating in local art competitions, displaying at
        our own annual Upper School Art Show, and amazing
        audiences with their talent at our Arts Showcase.
