My time at School for Advanced Studies has not only been beneficial to my education but also to my character as a person. Yes, SAS is an academically rigorous program. However, it is also a success factory that molds a student to become resilient and passionate. Coming in as a junior, I was inundated by all my impressive peers who later on became my best friends. These brilliant students became my support system to keep going, keep working hard, keep studying to ace that exam, and to keep reaching for success.

SAS challenges its students more than any other program I have seen. The expectations of teachers and administration are raised every single day. It seems overwhelming and at times it might be, but the beauty of SAS is its community. As a student I was not the only one feeling the pressure, my peers were as well; through this community, we built a support system that benefited us all in the end and helped us pursue our goals. The relationship and support doesn't end with the students, it also extends to faculty and staff. The teachers are aware of the heavy course load and genuinely want to help the students prevail with their studies. I've had countless tutoring hours with my teachers, whether it was to help push my essay score higher or to figure out a calculus problem, the teachers were always happy to help me regardless of how long it took. Even though the classes are taught in a group setting, gaining individualized lessons are not rare at SAS.

SAS has the most intimate type of relationships when it comes to counselors and students! This is so beneficial when applying to college but it also is such an amazing experience. The counselors at SAS know each individual student and can attentively work with the student since it is such a small class size in comparison to other high schools. Personally, my counselor has turned into one of the few people I seek for guidance. Personal close relationships are what thrives at SAS, These relationships become the foundation of success.

Choosing SAS was one of the greatest decisions I've made in my life; it might sound cliche but there is not one single ounce of regret with the choice I made. My education and my future would not be the same without SAS. I am proud and honored to be part of SAS and I can genuinely call this school my home and my family.
