I applied to Raisbeck because of the Skunk Works Robotics team, and I was not disappointed. I am starting my fourth year on the team and have learned more than I could have possibly imagined. The school also gave me the opportunities to have a mentor at Blue Origin and intern at Planetary Resources. While some classes felt too easy, I noticed that the language program and some science classes were at a faster pace and generally more challenging than some high schools in the Seattle Public School District. I also love that we are the only high school in Washington state to offer Quidditch (we don't do traditional sports)! If anything, I wish that it offered computer science classes and AP Physics C, especially since the Imperial College London requires a 5 in AP Physics C for some courses.

It wasn't horrible. I do feel like the experience limited me. Being hyper-focused on STEM isn't healthy for some: a lot of top universities emphasize intellectually challenging yourself in a broad range of studies. Students from this school are not well-rounded. I didn't get the exposure to non-Aviation related career paths that I needed. I came and left this school thinking engineering. When I got to college, I wasn't enjoying the classes I was taking. It hit me, I never enjoyed STEM classes, I just took them because I had to, I never explored beyond. I was a mindless drone who participated in numerous school clubs and got A's. Teachers were impartial towards me, thankfully most of them weren't biased in grading. I worked my butt off, but was never rewarded. I was called dumb by quite a few of my arrogant classmates (college peers now) on multiple occasions despite being a top student. If I could do it all again, I'd do running start.
Excellent foundations in the sciences! Dedicated teachers, motivated students, and a solid reputation help create a synergistic environment where everyone thrives.
