My favorite subject is journalism. It gives me the opportunity to lead others and pursue my passion while benefitting my community.
Single-sex education has really given me a newfound confidence in the classroom that I never had before. In a single-sex environment, there is no gender dominance, which makes me more likely to voice my opinion and ask questions.
English is my favorite subject because I love to read and the library has a big selection of books. I also like English because of my teacher, Mr. Estrada. He is really good at recommending books that he knows we will like.
My favorite activity at school is musical theater. This is the first year I am going to participate in the school musical — I'm very excited to get to do what I love the most, which is singing and being on stage!
I am proud of my mission project because I put a lot of time into it with my partner Ben. We had fun visiting the mission in Santa Cruz and we spent a lot of time working on the model and getting all of the details right.
My favorite subjects are Theology and English. The reason I love these subjects is because we have deep conversations. I love talking and finding out other perspectives to make my knowledge stronger.
The best part of my day is when I'm about to go to P.E. because one of my friends and I run the half mile before class. But my favorite part of P.E. is when our coach picks the teams since they are incredibly fair.
The school project I am most proud of is my "I Have A Dream" speech. Every year, the school holds a contest in which students are able to get up in front of the school and talk about their hopes and dreams for the world.
The best part of my day is always arriving at school. Mr. Marquette and/or Mr. Farrell are outside ready to greet everyone. I always get a firm handshake, a smile, and a "Good morning, hope you have a great day.
My favorite space on campus is the new Hoffman Learning Commons, because it provides me with a good, quiet place to do homework or study. The Learning Commons has an excellent learning environment that is very helpful.
