The 25th year at Providence is off to a record-breaking start. As we close out the first quarter of the year, we have so much for which to be thankful at Providence. In just this first quarter, our school has been recognized for having the second highest graduation rate of any school our size in the State for the second consecutive year. Our students have been recognized for having the highest SAT scores in the Charlotte region, and so many of our recent graduates have contacted us to say how thankful they are that Providence prepared them to succeed in college. One student said he didn’t appreciate it at the time because he worked so hard at Providence, but he now understands how helpful that preparation was to him. Academically, one can see that Providence students excel and are prepared to be competitive when they leave us. We thank our supportive parent population for entrusting your children to us and we strive to continue to work to ensure that the education they receive at Providence is top notch.
In addition to academics, our athletics and arts programs are off to a strong start. The 3 As are all quite robust at Providence. ALL of our fall athletic teams are (or have been) in the state playoffs this season (football is still in season but things look promising). Our Pride of Providence Band will also compete in Band Beat this weekend. The Speech and Debate team is off to a great debate season finishing well in their first contests, and our newly formed Quiz Bowl team finished 1st and 2nd place in their first contest of the year. Our NJROTC drill teams and competition teams have been working hard to bring home the accolades and finished 1st place in the first competition for the coveted Superintendent’s Cup. There is a place for each student to get involved and being involved outside the classroom makes for more well-rounded, happy and successful students.
