The headmaster's office at Flintridge Preparatory School on Crown Avenue was once a house, but Peter Bachmann, the school's headmaster, hopes students see it, and their school, as a home.
Prep officials hope each student establishes a life-long bond with their school. This year that long-standing goal is being addressed in a new way as the administration focuses on improving communication with everyone, whether they're students, alumni or community members.
"We're looking to tell our story as authentically and carefully as possible," Bachmann said.
To that end, Flintridge Prep's new website was unveiled by the time doors opened for the first day of the 2010-11 school year on Sept. 8.
Enrollment is about the same in 2010 as it has been for years, Bachmann said.
"We have been [at] right around 500 students for a long time," he said. "Our goal is not to grow the population, but continue to grow the quality of experience.
