  • I gave this school an "A", but not for the reasons most people would. I attended this school up until the end of 6th grade, after which, I moved to Florida. I'm not going to say that I learned more from this school than the middle school I currently attend. I will, however say that if you're looking for a group of friendly, supportive people who will help you through good grades and bad, you will find them here. I found friendship at this school. I grew up at this school. The things I experienced here will never be forgotten. That goes for me and my best friend, in this school. If the previous things I've mentioned still aren't convincing when it comes to why I gave this school and "A", think of these next few things. I am the Student Body President at my current school. This was a dream that was born while I watched the eigth graders during their campaigns when I was younger. I have (and had since second grade) a 4.0 GPA, probably something I owe to my teachers. Mrs. McVan, Sister Edwardine, Ms. Houseman, Mrs. Whartenby, Mrs. McClosekey, Mrs. Dunn, Mrs. Organski, Mrs. Indelicado, and Ms. Legel, if you guys are reading this, here's your shout-out!!! I truly miss this school and all my friends and teachers. Every time I come back to visit, I get melancholy, because, eventually, I'll have to leave!!
