We are excited to announce that Presentation High School's literary magazine, Boundless Volume V, Between the Lines, has been awarded the prestigious Recognizing Excellence in Art and Literary Magazines (REALM) distinction by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

Principal Kristina Luscher expressed pride in the achievement, stating, "This success underscores our students' exceptional literary talents and the dedication of our teachers. The success of Presentation's robust arts and literary program is a testament to our commitment to fostering creativity, innovation, and excellence in every aspect of education."

The REALM program recognizes outstanding literary magazines produced by students with the support of their teachers. It aims to encourage schools to develop literary magazines that celebrate the art and craft of writing. This year, the competition included submissions from schools across 46 states and five countries, totaling 375 student magazines from middle school, high school, and higher education levels.

A hallmark of Presentation's literary program is its emphasis on personalized support, reflected in Presentation High School's 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio. Our Learning Commons is a hub for academic resources featuring a full-time learning specialist and para-professionals. This commitment to individualized attention has led to impressive results, with Presentation students consistently achieving top SAT scores in reading and writing, scoring more than 100 points above the national average in 2023.
