Since 1987...

... Larry Griffin’s unparalleled dedication to students and families, his recruitment and training of outstanding teachers and staff, and his vision for the campus have made Shore what it is today: a vibrant community of teachers and learners gathered on a beautiful campus. For many of us, Shore is where our families have grown up together, where lifelong friendships have formed, and where our children have learned skills that will serve them all their lives.

In baseball, a grand slam is a home run hit with all three bases occupied by baserunners, thereby scoring four runs—the most possible in one play. Larry Griffin’s three decades of leadership as Head of School encompass his own grand slam for Shore. On first base, the children and families to whom Larry devoted both his compassion and his vision; on second, the faculty and staff he rewarded with trust and the highest respect; on third, the stunning campus and facilities whose renaissance he guided; and at home plate, Cathy, Robby, and David, the remarkable family whose history is thoroughly entwined with Shore’s, and whose strength and love nourished a Head’s heroic journey around the bases, and back to home.
