The school provides rigorous college preparation that promotes the student's sense of identity, community, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying life, and prepares the student to lead and to contribute to society.

Instruments of Change with Ruth Greenfield

This remote event provided an opportunity to connect with Ruth Greenfield, a Miami icon and true powerhouse in arts education with a strong connection to RE. Ruth is best known for her work at her Fine Arts Conservatory, where her insistence on racial equality in a time of segregation in the 1950s made a difference in the lives of countless children and families. She was joined on the virtual stage by four of her children – Charles Greenfield ’68, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders ’70, Alice Greenfield ’74 and Frank Greenfield – and retired Miami-Dade County Judge Wendell Graham ’74, a conservatory student who later became the first Black student at the Ransom School.
