Which two adjectives best describe your school?

One word would be supportive. I can’t count how many times teachers and administrators have reminded us that we can always reach out to them if we need any support either academically or personally.  The second word is hardworking. This describes both the faculty and the students. The teachers use different teaching strategies and ask us for feedback so they can make sure that we are all learning fully. When it comes to the students, I believe that every one of us has at least one thing that we are passionate about in school that we work hard to grow in.

It’s time to plan for camp. Hooray!
