Adrianna and James Wenz Jr. share a passion for theatre performance and a desire to uphold their reputation as "A" students at Shorecrest Preparatory School. But the siblings kept their distance when it came to academics, even as they finished their high school careers as Valedictorian and Salutatorian for the Class of 2014.
The class of 2014 graduated with a 3.84 grade-point average and with two National Merit Scholars, Adrianna and James Wenz Jr. This class also tied for largest with the class of 2011. Also, 97 percent of the class got scholarship offers totaling $7.5 million.
Founded to celebrate the positive accomplishments of local teens, the Mayor’s Youth Showcase of Achievement on May 13, 2014, recognized outstanding middle and high school students. In addition, an overall School of Excellence was named, and Shorecrest took home the title!
As early as 2011, Shorecrest Preparatory School knew integrating cutting edge technology into its curriculum was a high priority. When a seventh grade teacher received a grant to offer iPads in her classroom, Shorecrest’s one-to-one pilot program was born.
