The senior class trip to New York City on Jan. 11 with Mr. House and Ms. Nichols began with a morning visit to the Museum of Modern Art to see a dozen masterworks students had researched earlier in the week, including The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh and works by Salvatore Dali and Frida Kahlo. The students also had dress-circle seats to view the critically acclaimed Broadway revival of “Death of a Salesman,” a fresh African-American perspective on a 1949 classic they read in AP Literature class. They also walked through Times Square and took some photos on the iconic red steps before heading over to Tony’s Di Napoli for its famed Italian-American fare and culture. The waiters even performed a mini-concert.
“It was such a charmed day; everything went so well, starting with the smooth and speedy jitney rides to and from the city,” Mr. House said. “The Broadway production of ‘Death of a Salesman’ was eye-opening, and we are delighted to have been able to see it live. It provided us with a new perspective on the circumstances of a work that we read in class, making the play more engaging and relevant to our learning today.”
