Menlo has offered me so many opportunities for exploration.
Just one example is Knight School, a week of experiential learning courses. I’ve explored California, learning about marine biology in a boat on the Channel Islands for a week, as well as Death Valley. All of these opportunities require so much trust, and Menlo is a community of total trust in students' integrity, which makes a huge difference.
In the classroom, I’ve explored all subjects with a unique joy that Menlo brings to learning. My math teacher brought cake and we had a full-fledged party when we learned the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
Lastly, Menlo has helped me discover myself. I understand so much more about what matters to me and how I learn best. The Menlo community is incredibly caring, close-knit, and all my teachers have made efforts to know my classmates and me personally.
