Going to an all-girls school has given me a sense of family and sisterhood. I love going to an all-girls school, but I also think it's cool that we have a boys school and a high school, too.

Favorite Subject
My favorite subject is math because my teacher always creates a positive learning environment and a fun class activity to help me master each concept. She puts so much hard work into every lesson to make each class greater than the last.

Favorite School Activity
My favorite school activity is volleyball because all of my friends pick each other up and we really work together as a team. This year we made it to the BAIAL championships and won!

Favorite School Tradition
My favorite school tradition is Congé because everyone always has such a good time and it is so fun to end the school year on such a happy note. I also love how it's a surprise because people think we are having another regular school day, but really it's a carnival day!

Favorite Space on Campus
My favorite place on campus is the gym because it has great equipment and we can play many sports there. I feel grateful for the gym because so much hard work and effort was put into it to make it fun and useful for each and every student.

Best Part of Your Day
The best part of my day is Chemistry because there are a lot of fun experiments. For example, one time we even got to make slime! I also really like my teacher because she relates chemical equation problems to real life to help her students understand the unit more clearly.

Favorite School Project
This year in Social Studies we did a project called "The Dig." "The Dig" is an archaeological project in which each group creates a civilization and artifacts to bury on Baker Beach. Then, another group digs it up and makes a hypothesis about what was important to the civilization based on the artifacts they found. I really liked this project, and I was proud of how well our group worked together to figure out what the other group's civilization was about.

Benefits of Single-Sex Classes, Coed Community
Going to an all-girls school has given me a sense of family and sisterhood. I love going to an all-girls school, but I also think it's cool that we have a boys school and a high school, too. When I was in second grade, the high schoolers would help us with reading and writing. On Fridays we would also have a class called Coed where we would do activities with the boys from our grade.
