  • Metairie Park Country Day School presents CHICAGO: High School Edition

    The longest-running American musical in Broadway history comes to Country Day! This November, live performances return to Weinmann Auditorium after a two-year absence with our production of CHICAGO: High School Edition. Set in the Jazz Age 1920s, CHICAGO takes the format of a vaudeville show to tell a musical story of murder, corruption, celebrity, and "All That Jazz." In our contemporary world of twisted justice and internet fame, this satire of villainy repackaged as entertainment may be more relevant than ever. The original Broadway production premiered in 1975, ran for 936 performances, and earned nominations for 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. In 1996, CHICAGO returned to Broadway in a new production that is now in its 25th year of performances, making it the longest-running American musical in history. 
  • 9th Grade Retreat, A Chance to Grow

    Ninth-grade students and advisors traveled to Loranger, LA for the Freshmen Retreat. Students participated in activities that fostered class unity, promoted problem-solving and positive communication techniques, and taught them more about student life in the Upper School. According to Upper School Principal Augustine Whyte, “Two fun-filled days of games, activities, and self-reflection provided our 9th-grade class with another important opportunity to grow together.”
  • College Board Scholars Named: Gabrielle White and Claire Fernandez

    Congratulations to Gabrielle White for being named a College Board National African American Recognition Program Scholar and Claire Fernandez for being named a College Board National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholar! In August, the College Board awarded 32,000 students from across the country with academic honors from the College Board for excelling in their classrooms and on College Board assessments. More than 80,000 students from all 50 states were eligible to join the College Board National Recognition Programs, which grant students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications. Students who may be eligible have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams; and are African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town. Way to go, Gabrielle and Claire!
  • Upper School Art: Shading, Value, and Portraiture

    What a great way to learn value and shading! Mrs. Haysley's students made paper airplanes and drew them as they landed (yes, after throwing them in class). After a discussion of value application and charcoal, students used white charcoal on black paper to make their paper airplanes appear 3-dimensional. Then, in Mrs. Haysley's Honors Art class, students studied the intense use of contrast in portraiture.  Students used dark shadows next to brighter highlights to emphasize the intense emotions portrayed by the subject.
