THS Mock Trial Teams Place in Regional

Congratulations to our Mock Trial teams who placed 16th and 20th (out of the 180+ participants) in the Virginia Law-Related Education Institute’s regional mock trial competition.  We could not be more proud of the hard work and commitment they demonstrated over the past few months.  

To have teams composed of 9th, 10th, and 11th graders competing against seasoned teams featuring seniors is a challenge, but they all rose to the occasion and held their own to demonstrate poise, knowledge, and skills, several students earning individual recognition for their performance as attorneys and “best witness.”

This week’s Friday Guest Speakers from EVMS, Krishan, Leah, Abigail, & Colleen, shared their academic experiences and personal journeys with our students, emphasizing that there are multiple pathways to reach a goal and that authenticity and sincerity are essential to working within a community. We are so grateful for their time, comments, and commitment to paying it forward. 

Operation Smile

Our IB students toured the Operation Smile Interactive Learning Center today, meeting the co-founders, Dr. Bill Magee and Kathy Magee. They learned about the life-changing work of this organization, stepping into the shoes of children in need around the world as they explored cultural, emotional, and socioecomomic issues, as Dr. Zimmerman explained the medical process in the facility’s operating room. Blending service with a global perspective, this moving tour contributes to expanding our IB students’ worldview!

Model UN

We are so proud of the students who participated in the VAMUN competition at The University of Virginia in November. During the trip, they enjoyed opportunities to tour the University of Richmond and William and Mary. 

Our summer Oceanography course was a success!

Our students joined forces with students from our sister school in Mexico to complete a rigorous 3-week course in Oceanography at Virginia Wesleyan University.  Students had the full college experience: living in the dorms, attending classes, working in the lab, giving a formal poster presentation, and earning 4 credits.  We are so proud of their accomplishment!
