We are incredibly proud of the Class of 2022! This month, our 8th grade Rockets soared to new heights and graduated, marking the end of one journey and the beginning of another.
The past few years have not been without their challenges. However, these graduates overcame obstacles and pushed themselves to achieve high academic goals, make new friends and get involved beyond the classroom. Additionally, our 8th graders received 100% placement for their high school of choice! Their hard work and dedication did not go unnoticed.
Many of these students took advantage of new elective opportunities, learning the rules of archery, competing on Oklahoma City’s first esports team for middle schoolers and so much more. Their resiliency is inspiring and serves as an encouraging reminder that it’s never too late to try something new or begin again.
Several graduation speakers, including Head of School Dean Ketchum, current John Rex Board President Nathaniel Harding and others, sent the 8th grade students well wishes and advice as they embark on a new journey. They were left with the following message: there’s no dream too big or too far out of reach for a John Rex Rocket.
Congratulations to the Class of 2022!
