    Cambrian International Academy is one, if not the best K12 school that ready students for College. With an interactive faculty group, small facility but up to date with great equipment, Cambrian creates an environment for students to challenge each other and excel educationally in both High School and prepare for the same attitude towards College and University. As of the small facility that Cambrian has, the students has the chance to work closely with the teacher to reach their respective goals and likewise, the teacher can have more time to help the students as they can know the ability of each individual students. Students here can immerse themselves into school activities created by students and teachers from their own clubs, such as doing fundraiser, sport's tournament, and especially students themselves organized the school Prom every year. Students came from all over the world with different backgrounds so it makes Cambrian such a diverse space for studying!

    As a former student, I cannot express how much I love Cambrian Academy. I would thank Cambrian Academy, since without it, I would not have my journal at UC Irvine and Stanford University. Academically, it has amazing teachers who do not only teach academic knowledge, but also encourage students to think from different perspectives to grow as a whole person. Personally, all of the staff and faculty members were caring for me as a person. Also, it has rich resources to support students to engage with different activities. For example, when I was a student, I was engaged with go-kart racing team and participated in different racings, which helped me for my college applications. Besides, the school has teacher to help seniors for their college applications, which was a huge help! Within the smaller size of class, it is better for students to interact with the teachers. Cambrian is also a school to respect diversity, which I have made friends all over the world and still keep connections.
    I'll graduate from Cambrian this year. I received many cares and opportunities to be successful from teachers in here. Although Cambrian Academy's still a small school, its improvement's very fast. There are many subjects with both teachers and online so students freely choose. Many projects're created to help students interact practically. I'm in GNaRLI project by Dr. Bender to protect native plants, maintain the diversity of the ecosystem. I also in Yearbook class not only design a yearbook but also writing articles for the Cambrian newspaper. I think it's helpful in improving writing skills and sharing events popularly with everyone. I think, under one hundred students, having five clubs is enough to organize fundraisers and activities. I love the Cultural show at the end of the year to learn cultures through performances. Moreover, communication between school and parents is close to ensure the learning of students. I believe any student will have good times in Cambrian Academy.
