Senior: I love Gann so much, I wake up every day excited to go to school. The teachers here sincerely care about you and want you to succeed, and the community is so amazing and supportive. Gann students are passionate and driven people and thinkers, and unafraid to show it. Most of us are involved in multiple activities outside the classroom, it's pretty abnormal not to do so. Going to a pluralistic Jewish day school is a unique experience, I can happily say that I have friends of many different Jewish beliefs and denominations who are all willing to engage with each other. Gann has shaped me into a thoughtful person who is ready to go out into the world and follow my passions in college and beyond. I value my time here so much and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Senior: EPJ is such an accepting school that was a perfect fit for me. While I may not have gotten along with all of the students there, the teachers and administration at EPJ provide a very supportive, family-like atmosphere that allows for every student to fulfill their potential if they choose to do so. Of course, there will always be slackers just like there are in every other school, but the teachers at EPJ have incredibly high expectations and push every student to do their best in their classes. My high school days at EPJ were a blast! (And the girls' basketball team was pretty darn good too ;) )
