Charter Oak continues its winning ways!

Last Saturday Charter Oak's Shakespeare Team really stated who we are. Out of 65 schools present for the competition, Charter Oak finished in the top 10 in almost every event. The Junior Varsity team placed in the top 10 in every event we entered. Then many of our students finished in the top five. We won two Sweepstakes awards for overall team excellence. The Junior Varsity won 3rd place in sweepstakes and the Varsity team won 5th.

The follow are our winning placements:

Considering that this tiny little school from Covina can stand toe to toe with the performing arts schools is quite an accomplishment!
