We know that the proof of our success as educators lies in the outcomes and achievements of our students. That's why we couldn't be more proud that our students have gone on to win more than 20 Emmys, 10 Jeff Awards, 6 Oscars, 2 Grammys, 2 Tonys, and 2 Pulitzer Prizes, to say nothing of the many more who have won Guggenheim fellowships, gone on to start their own businesses, write their own columns in major dailies, perform on television, dance, exhibit, design, produce, animate, compose, manage, write, and to direct with the best.
