Heschel was an extraordinary learning experience for me. When I first attended heschel as a freshman I was a bit timid because of the intense schedule. As I adjusted to the school's academic system, I realized I began to develop skills that I was unaware that I had. We had classes from 8-5 everyday, and I was on the basketball team so I had basketball practice 3 times a week from 7-9. My schedule was hectic, but it made me a more disciplined person. My time management skills and work ethic were honed by heschel and I am very thankful that I attended their high school. Heschel was the first step to my future successes.
