Each year, juniors and seniors travel to Ashland, Oregon, for four days during the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Students watch plays, explore the town of Ashland and experience outdoor activities such as whitewater rafting or bicycling. This year’s featured play was Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar,” which English teachers Patricia Fels, Jane Bauman and Jason Hinojosa read and analyzed with the students in the weeks leading up to the trip.
