Chris & Debbie = Win WinHere is how some of our Howard County Schools fared in Newsweek’s 2014 America’s High Schools

#18 CENTENNIAL HIGH SCHOOL, Ellicott City       #258 MARRIOTTS RIDGE HIGH SCHOOL, Marriottsville    #266 RIVER HILL HIGH SCHOOL, Columbia      #407 ATHOLTON HIGH SCHOOL, Columbia      #490  MOUNT HEBRON HIGH SCHOOL, Ellicott City

The Methodology (excerpted from Newsweek)

The question “What are the best schools?” has two different answers, depending on whether or not you take student poverty into account.  In 2014, we decided to address this disparity by publishing two lists: “America’s Top High Schools 2014,” which ranks schools based solely on performance (our “absolute” list), and “Beating the Odds: America’s Top High Schools for Low-Income Students,” which ranks schools with poverty levels taken into account (our “relative” list).

HERE ARE SOME GREAT LINKS TO THE MAG!

Marriotts Ridge Madrigal Singers at the Kennedy Center

Marriotts Ridge Madrigals at the Kennedy Center

The Marriotts Ridge Madrigal Singers recently performed December 15th at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C with 2 more shows on December 22nd and two additional shows at the Strathmore in Washington D.C planned for December 20th and 21st. Click the following link to get ticket information: Candlelight Info

Flora Scott of DC Metro Theatre Arts wrote this pleasant article about the concert and gave a wonderful review of our beloved Madrigal Singers:

Midway through the first half, The Madrigal Singers from Marriotts Ridge High School chimed in and filled the room with a spirited bliss that resounded like little bells jingle jangling with fun. Their layers were simply divine. And when their set was over, they joined The Washington Chorus to finish the show and so, too, were the finishing touch on our magical musical Christmas Tree. As audience members, we were invited to join in on many songs.

If you would like more information about the Madrigals and want them to sing at your party or function, email me at [email protected] or contact the Marriotts Ridge Music Foundation for more information on how you can support the Marriotts Ridge Music and Arts programs.
