Advantages of the
Dillenbeck School

" And they read in the book, in the law of God, distinctly; and they gave the sense, so that they understood the reading." 
-- BIBLE

 

Lectures

HE Special Lecture Course each year is furnished by the most cultured and scholarly men and women in Kansas City.  
   The topics they discuss have a direct bearing upon the work of the school, and in every way furnish an inspiration to the pupils.  These lectures are free to the pupils and friends of the school.
 

SPECIAL

   In justice to school boards and the public, as well as to our school and its pupils, we desire it to be understood that all graduates or other pupils of sufficient training to warrant our doing so will be given a diploma or a written testimonial of their fitness to teach or to give public recitals.  We hope such testimonials will be required of any claiming to have been students of this school, should they seek employment.

   We are forced to make this request, because, within the last two years, persons who have only taken a few lessons, and in one case none at all, have, through false representations, secured positions to teach.

   We feel that our obligations to the public demand this statement.

 

LIBRARY

   In a school of this character, in order to do the best work, a good reference library is a necessity.  The collection now numbers several hundred volumes and the number is increasing from year to year.  The best books are purchased as soon as they are published, that our pupils may be in touch with the most advanced thought.
 

RECITALS

   A series of public recitals, beginning with the winter term, is give each year, and such pupils as have made sufficient progress will have every opportunity of appearing in public.  Reading, recitations, scenes from the drama are presented in such a way as to make these recitals exceedingly popular, and on every occasion the large hall has been taxed to its utmost.
 

A WELL-CONDUCTED SCHOOL

   Noteworthy features of our work may be briefly summarized as follows:
   Painstaking individual attention given to each student.
   Simplicity, naturalness and thoroughness in our instruction.
   Small classes, giving a maximum of platform practice.
   Training built upon broad fundamental lines.
   Sympathetic, constructive criticisms.
   High cultural tone maintained always.
   Honesty in all our dealings and methods.
   Bachelor of Oratory degree given to all graduates.
