Margaretville Central School
- Margaretville Central School District, NY
- PK, K-12
High School Senior: This school is part of my family, this school is my family. My great-grandfather went here as the part of the Class of 1939. My parents both went here. Although, Margaretville is small it is mighty. It is special. My parents went around the world before they came back to the town they grew up in to raise me. After I finish college and medical school, who knows perhaps I will do the same. There is something about living in a small town, that gives you a sense of unity with the community. A sense of love, respect and compassion, that you do not traditionally see in suburban and urban areas.

Emma Willard School
- Private School
- Troy, NY
Senior: Emma Willard has a rigorous academic program that gave me plenty of opportunities to develop as a student and a person. There are plenty of resources on campus for academic help, whether it be through student tutors or the teachers themselves, who are often available during study hall. The students I learn alongside are some of the most intelligent, and have pushed me to become the best I am today.
The student body's awareness of social justice issues is also remarkable. In response, Emma has held events and discussions revolving around these issues, resulting in profound and rewarding conversations that I am grateful for.
I will say the lack of diversity in faculty is somewhat disappointing, considering the wide range of diversity among students. Additionally, the dining options have become redundant, having been a boarder for a few years here.
Overall, Emma Willard provides students with many fantastic opportunities—so long as you're willing to take advantage of them.
