Upper School

When our WA robotics teams are not busy preparing for a competition, they invest their time serving our community. Their demonstrations foster a greater understanding and interest in STEM and robotics for all age levels. Therefore, they welcomed the opportunity to present at Broward College's iCan STEM Symposium on Friday, November 1. This gathering focused on creating interest and excitement about teaching science and technology in Broward County schools. As a result, students and teachers from schools in Broward County attended. The high school robotics team presented FIRST Robotics at the Symposium and demonstrated the high school robot, and Mrs....

During October, we sent our middle and high school students out of the classroom with one purpose: to build and develop their personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The upper school spiritual retreats created that platform. In Lake Placid, Florida, sixth-grade students heard from Caleb Koornef, director of student ministries for CRPC, and his wife, Suzannah, while our seventh and eighth-grade girls heard from Heather Palacios from Church by the Glades. In Lake Wales, Florida, Pastor Timothy Torres from Spanish River Church spoke to our seventh and eighth-grade boys. Finally, last week Pastor Junior St. Val, pastor of discipleship from Journey Church,...

The high school robotics team, FRC Team 744 Shark Attack, competed on Saturday at Mission Mayhem at the Dillard High School. This competition had some historic firsts for the team. For example, Shark Attack fielded two distinctly different robots for the first time. In fact, the second robot ran for the first time at 10:00 p.m. the night before the competition. The team has never attempted an effort quite like it. Moreover, Shark Attack had three drivers, a drive coach, and a drive technician for this competition. They even had a human player in new roles piloting the robots. In addition,...
