lsa's West Side Story will transport you to 1950s New York City where two young, idealistic lovers, Tony and Maria, find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.
Our Grade 11 and 12 curriculum follows the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP). The IB Diploma encourages intellectual growth, academic rigour, and personal development through a holistic and balanced approach. It opens doors to the best universities worldwide. Moreover, it helps develop lifelong learners who are prepared to make the difference to the communities they inhabit. Thus Classical Hebrew, Jewish philosophy and Advanced Modern Hebrew fit in perfectly with the IB philosophy.
Students will be able to opt for the full Diploma or individual courses in subjects of their choice. For more information on the IB DP curriculum and philosophy, please visit this website. It is intended that all students will graduate with the Elsa High School Diploma which is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
