Class of 2010
Florida State University

A fusion of a high school and college experience, this school allowed me to continuously challenge myself.  The advanced placement core classes kept me on my toes with my study habits.  In conjunction with high school classes, the college classes amped up my time management skills, forcing me to balance passing my classes and getting well-acquainted with my college professors.  Such a family-like atmosphere made it easy to make friends.  These friends become your study-partners, your secret-keepers, socialites, and although these individuals are only here for 2 years, it makes the experience more wonderful.  SAS still has prom, senior brunch, cross campus picnic, senior trip, and fall dance.  Just like any other school, SAS has field trips and school activities that are just as much fun if not better!  In essence, SAS is a wonderful experience that has escalated and enhanced my educational experience.
