What's the biggest difference between middle school and high school? The expectations from teachers are much higher at College Prep than at my middle school.

Why are you glad that you chose College Prep? College Prep has a sense of community unlike any other high school. When I visited College Prep, I was amazed by the warmth, generosity, and intellectual curiosity of the school community.

What advice do you have for 8th graders applying to high school? Don't stress about where you end up going to school, and don't choose a school based on where your friends are going. Pick a school where you feel that you can be comfortable and flourish! Trust the process, and remember that where you go to high school doesn’t define you as a student.

What campus activities are you involved in? Spirit Committee, Photography, French Club Leader, Life Prep Redesign Task Force.

What is your favorite College Prep memory? Freshman year spirit week! Nobody was sure how much the freshman would do in terms of decoration for our first ever spirit week, but we pulled through and it really showed the strength of our class. 

What has been your favorite class? French! The French department at College Prep is absolutely fantastic. Language classes feel less like grammar classes and more like humanities seminars conducted in a foreign language. The courses are challenging, but I have developed a deep and meaningful connection with the French language during my time at College Prep.

What has been the best thing about College Prep? The people! Everyone at College Prep contributes to the unique and inspiring vibe that makes our school so special.
Who is your favorite character from a movie/book/television series? Michael Scott from The Office
