Senior Gabe Bernstein works in the school greenhouse. This past summer, Bernstein explored various research opportunities to finally recognize what science fields he would like to pursue.

He has participated in many orchestras, including the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra, Community Music School’s Preparatory Program, and the Missouri All-State Orchestra.

Freshman Amelie Lock rehearses in the high schools Performing Arts Center. She has acted in various environments, from massive open-air theaters like the Muny, to competitive audition rooms in New York City, to her own bedroom on tape for send-in auditions. No matter the environment, she strove to perform at her best—to treat acting as the art form that it is instead of a job in an industry. There were are a lot of auditions that Im super proud of, and I think that any actor that youll talk to will say the same thing because so often we get really close to a role, Lock said.
