When I first started highschool, I was getting distracted by other things which weren’t helping me in my life or my future. My peers and teachers showed me the real value of education and since then, I’ve changed my life. I realize how important school is and how much it benefits your future. I started playing many sports which taught me how to balance everything. I joined robotics and learned engineering is a area, I am very interested in. The whole place has contributed a lot to the person I am today!

Chicago math and science academy was a great school from the start, when I first go there it was a welcoming enviroment from the students and teachers. As times passed, teachers started playing the favoritism game where only certain students were able to get help for college and had more opportunities than others students like me. It was quite unfair the way students were divided into the amount of help they were giving for college.
One thing I really like about my school is the education and workload offered, it really has me prepared for college. They prep you for the real world and everything that comes with being in college. It was not easy for me, but that is what made me strive to succeed more as years went by. I've been here since the 6th grade, and now I am a senior. I've experienced so much at this school, from the good to the bad. This is like my second home in a sense, I'll never forget what this school made me and how far it took me.
