I attended Ursula after my freshman year at another High school. It was a weird transition because I had left all my friends behind and had to start all over again and it was an all girls school. Something that I really wasn't used to. However, I met some awesome girls, three of which became my best friends, we still keep in touch. The teachers were outstanding, I learned a lot and they continued to encourage me even when my grades were slipping. At times, I have nostalgia about that place. I do miss it. But I will never forget Ursula.
Review Academy of Mount St. Ursula
There are a numerous a month of clubs. The major priority of each club is to show diversity and equality. We have clubs such as Dance Club, Umoja Dare Step Team, Spanish Club, Italian Club, Dramatics/Theatre, and the Anima Club. Other clubs include Creative Writing, EcoScience, The AMSU Ambassadors, Student Council, Library Club, Fashion Club and much more. Every student has shown dedication and commitment in their club because the administrators make it fun and welcoming. Every year we have an event called International Night that allows different clubs to perform and show friends, family, and guests their talents and their clubs spirit.
I am a current Junior at the Acadmy of Mt. St. Ursula and so far for the past 2 years I have been in the school I like it. Ursula is not that bad of a school my friends are like my sisters and we are all a big family. There are many nice teachers and many opportunities you can get from other students. So far, being in Ursula has given me a few problems, but it is still a really good school. We have lots of clubs and service and there is always emphasis on doing service for others which also opens many other opportunities. Sports wise we are not that strong but there is a lot of sportsmanship and support for each other. Overall, it isn't that bad and I will be proud to be an alumni of the school.
