What I admire about my High School is the agreement that the environment accepts all colors, beliefs and authenticity of who we are as people. My brother has learning disabilities and is also Gay and I have seen him thrive. I have been a linked in crew member that basically allows me to help my fellow peers that need support and a friend! I will leave Conard with my head high with pride and confidence for the opportunities that were afforded to me and those that I made for myself as a student leader! Thank you.

One of my favorite things about Conard High School is the diversity. The statistics of diversity of Conard represents the diversity of America. I enjoy walking down the halls and seeing so many different races and hearing many different languages. Our school embraces diversity which I really appreciate. It makes me want to ensure I go to a college where diversity is praised. Our school is also very accepting of different backgrounds, not just the teachers but also the students as well. It doesn't matter the race, language or economic background, what matters is the type of person you are and that holds much value to me. Also academics are challenging but not in a too stressful way. Teachers always push us to do better but not too much where were overstressed.
Conard High School is rated as 13th in Connecticut schools according to US News. As a student at Conard, I can understand why. The teachers, for one, are great. On the first day of school, I was greeted by a crowd of teachers on each side of the hall clapping for me and my classmates as we walked into the auditorium. The principal then gave a speech telling us how he was grateful to have such wonderful students and he knew we would succeed. My favorite teacher is my Latin teacher Mr. Coleman. He is very nice as he understands we as students are very busy and therefore he teaches light but well. He makes sure we are fully prepared before we take a test. However, he also makes sure no student slacks. He gets mad when people take advantage of him and use their phone in his class. I have only heard stories because he has never gotten mad at our class. Finally, I love the diversity of the school. Everywhere you look, you see different people from all different cultures. I love it there.
