Niche User: I can say that attending this high school changed me. The fourteen-year-old me walked into the high school with timid steps and looking only at the off-white colored tiles of the floor. I was terribly quiet and hated having to speak in class. The only time where I was not afraid to be myself was during band practice. Although the tiny whistlings of my flute were scarce heard above the roaring brass section and the pounding percussions, it felt amazing to contribute to the amazing sound that filled the empty halls of the school. But, the band director and the other faculty who supported my love for music helped me come out of my shell. Not only did he instill in every one of his students that every note of every instrument was important to create masterpieces, but they are all uniquely different enough to stand out, and all deserve to be played with pride. With his support, I ended my senior year not the timid flute player in the second row, but as the drum major who single-handedly conducted the marching band and parts of the orchestra. I would never have expected to turn out the way I did, but I owe it all to the faculty who helped support me and teach me that I am important and should be heard.
