From the Head of School
Dear Benjamin School Parents,
I hope you have already begun to decompress a bit and luxuriate in the ripples of summer that, at this early point, reach all the way out to the horizon. Back at school, we are filled with pride over the outstanding work of our students this year and the many ways they have been recognized for excellence. With awards ceremonies, moving-up programs from one division to the next, and senior commencement now all behind us, we have a digest of the many ways in which our young people have excelled, not only at school, but in regional, state and national competitions.
One way in which fine independent schools like Benjamin are evaluated in the broader community is by the colleges and universities that pursue their students for admission. The particular announcements below placed in The Palm Beach Post and the Palm Beach Daily News speak to the boundless opportunities made available to our students as they graduate from TBS. Moreover, twenty of our Upper School students, twelve of whom seniors, were offered commitments to play their sport at the collegiate level. This is a uniquely strong percentage of student-athletes, compared locally and nationally, who are awarded this category of recognition for their talent and dedication.
Please accept my best wishes for sun, fun and family time as the summer season unfolds for you. Remember to be in touch with me for whatever reason in anticipation of school year 2015-2016. It is always my pleasure to be of assistance.
Head of School
