Admissions Events

Admissions Events & Timeline

Our events are designed to start big and get increasingly personalized the more we get to know you. Events are separated into two categories - primary events and micro-events. Primary Events are the more critical, large scale events, and Micro-Events are optional small scale events based on interest. For more information on events please see below.

Primary Events

List of 5 items.

    The 415

    For the second year in a row, the Associated Student Body (ASB) at Drew will present The 415 Festival. This is a weekend event for families that celebrates life in the Bay Area through food, dance, and music. This student-produced event takes place in the courtyard at Drew. Students will organize  pop-up “restaurants” in which they designed a light menu with snacks and beverages. Each restaurant contains a theme centered around San Francisco. While participants visit the restaurants, they will be entertained by student performances every 15 minutes in a festival format. This event is open to the public.

Experience What High School Should Be

Drew knows and believes in teenagers. We engage each student in a process of intellectual discovery to develop an individual voice, the confidence to express it, and the empathy to understand its impact.
