After having the privilege of attending School for Advanced Studies High school, I can honestly say that I have grown as an individual. I attribute this growth to this school’s rigorous academic challenges and diverse social climate. Like iron sharpening iron; the challenging Advanced Placement classes, the variety of college classes, the diverse population of high school and college classmates, the actual college environment, and the vast opportunities to get involved in extracurricular activities in both the academic and social realms has established, reinforced, influenced, and challenged my way of thinking and interacting with others; making me a better person and scholar.
School for Advanced Studies has also given me the confidence to broaden my horizons. In the fall, I will be attending a top 20 university outside of Florida; and I honestly would have never even fathomed such a thing if I had not joined the SAS family. This family plays together, groans in unison in anticipation of the next calculus quiz, rallies in support of those affected by death and tragedy, celebrates the perfect SAT scores and dream college acceptances of each students as if it were our own, studies together, and we even procrastinate together! Because of the School for Advanced Studies; I am a better person, with bigger dreams and a family to share them with!
