Copenhagen Central School
- Copenhagen Central School District, NY
- PK, K-12
Senior: I love the inspiring teachers who are always ready to teach even on their worst days. Also, the way they are passionate allows the students such as myself to really follow our passions. The only things I would change would be the course selections and the high reliance on technological advances. I understand the lack of teachers for the extra courses but of course, education is always an important aspect in a child’s life, meaning that only the best is acceptable. Also, the school relies on technology incredibly such as chrome books and iPads for students starting in third grade all the way through high school. Overall, the school is amazing with only slight changes that don’t necessarily need to be made in order to be spectacular.

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.
