• Principal's Message

    Winter 2019-20




    I hope everyone enjoyed the Thanksgiving Break! The weather may be getting colder and the days shorter but this does not deter our hardworking students and staff from blazing a trail in the educational community.  Best of luck to our winter athletic teams, HOSA, Math League, Odyssey of the Mind, and Science Olympiad teams amongst others as they begin competition in the weeks ahead.


    Our seniors have been working hard to complete college applications; I can’t wait to see where they end up.


    The Conrad Schools of Science High School Drama Club is proud to announce its performances of “Clue on Stage.”  Performances are as follows:

    • January 31st 7:00pm
    • February 1st 7:00pm
    • February 7th 7:00pm
    • February 8th 1:00pm matinee and 7:00 closing night


    Conrad 8th graders interested in attending Conrad for high school must complete the state choice application. This includes 8th graders who have been fast-tracked. We hope you choose us!  Application are found at www.schoolchoicede.org.


    Conrad is a College Board AP Capstone School.  This is an innovative and engaging college-level program immersing high school students in the practice of critical skills needed to distinguish themselves in college and life.  Later this winter, all students will be making course selections for the 2020-21 school year.  We encourage 9th grade students to select AP Seminar as their 10th Grade English and 10th and 11th grade students who have completed AP Seminar to consider taking AP Research, the second course in the sequence, as an elective.  This culminating course allows students to design, plan, and conduct a yearlong research-based investigation on a topic of individual interest.


    In closing, while we will continue the accelerated curriculum and vision of a bioscience magnet, please be reminded of our primary commitment to a safe, secure, and inclusive learning environment.  Conrad staff and students will strictly follow the Red Clay Code of Conduct and its policies.


    Keep warm.  The school’s spring season will be here before you know it.  Thanks for your continued support.
