  • Isn’t It Wonderful

    As I began what I believe may be my 600th Ebytes article, I reflected on many of the wonderful people I have met and events that have occurred at Shorecrest over the past 15 years.

    I estimate that 14,580 students have attended Shorecrest over those years. 1,061 have commenced and are now Shorecrest Alumni. Colleagues, parents and I helped, and at times even pulled out of cars, many of those reluctant students who are now graduates when they were in Experiential School and Lower School. It is truly wonderful to see them now!

  • LESSONS IN LEADERSHIP: The Legacy of Headmaster Mike Murphy

    by: Paul Abercrombie
    Shorecrest wouldn’t look the same if not for soon-to-retire Headmaster Mike Murphy. Most of the campus as it exists today was built during his 15 years of leadership. Proud as Murphy is of the role he has played at Shorecrest - which he emphatically calls “supporting only” thanks to the leaders who came before him - he’s more gratified to have helped remake the school’s approach to education.
