“Do not be afraid to talk to the teachers. Coming from a public middle school, the thought of actually talking to my teachers face to face was very intimidating. I was used to teachers only wanting to keep everything beyond professional and who didn’t care about me.  The teachers here truly care about all of their students and only wish for us to succeed. I found that my grades were able to significantly increase once I started talking to my teachers, too.  They’re all pretty chill people. They love it when students show that they are interestIMG_0595ed and that they care.”
