Rising 9th Grade Student Event

Rising1 Rising2







Last Wednesday, our 8th graders enjoyed a fun and informative lunch about their transition to Upper School. Students were treated to Chick-fil-a sandwiches before playing an interactive iPad game that tested their knowledge of all that Upper School has to offer. The competition was fierce, with the winning team earning the chance to pie Mr. Bohner, Upper School Assistant Principal, in the face!

We encourage parents to use this as an opportunity to discuss your child’s future as they move from middle to upper school. If you have any questions about Upper School, please feel free to contact Mary Gooseman at 407.206.8659 or We’re excited to welcome your children to 9th grade in the 2015-2016 school year!
