Emerson Junior/Senior High School

- Emerson Public Schools, NJ
Alum: Emerson Jr/Sr High school has taught me a lot about myself as a person and a student. It is where I recognized who I am as a student, athlete, sister, daughter, and overall person. The people at the school made me feel comfortable and I was always helped when I needed it. However, I feel that I could have been better prepared for college. I mean this both in terms of school policy and academic rigor. Academically, my courses could have been a little more informative- I felt as though I was learning the same things for all four years. But on the other side of that, there was little to no resume preparation, interview advice, or anything that could give me a head start in going to college and beginning a life in the professional world. There have recently been steps made providing seniors with internship opportunities and offering college courses at Bergen Community College, and I think that the school needs to follow in that direction.

Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart
- Private School
- Bellevue, WA
Senior: Forest Ridge is a great school to attend, the academics are very challenging and the teachers know how to push students to create the best work possible. Since the academics are quite rigorous, there is a slightly stressed and competitive environment at the school. However, this does not mean that the student community is not strong. From my personal experience, everyone is so friendly and welcoming, especially new student entering the high school. I would recommend this school to prepare for college readiness as some of the courses mimic college level work. Athletics is also another fun part of the Forest Ridge experience, there is a no-cut policy that ensure that all students can participate in any sports; this is a great place to meet new people in other grades and where I made some of my best friendships!
