The annual Stratford trip is an experience that TOPS students of all grades look forward to. It’s a two-day overnight excursion that takes place during the first week of October. Over the course of these two days, students will explore downtown; eat dinner with friends; and most importantly, watch three plays. Typically, students will watch at least one Shakespeare adaptation, whether it is a traditional rendition or a modern spin. And over the course of their English class, some grades may refer to and analyze the performances that they watched. The experience is intended to be both educational and fun, and is likely to forge lasting memories among the TOPS students.
