Springville Elementary School
- Springville-Griffith Institute Central School District, NY
Alum: Not the best ranked Elementary school, but I always had great teachers always willing to challenge me. There is a real lack in diversity, but it is located in one of the most monochromatic areas of the country, the southtowns of Buffalo NY. There is a wide range of ideals and income levels though. One thing I would change is getting the students more involved! The band, orchestra, and chorus programs could really be good for an elementary school because the teachers are great.

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.
