    5 Most Diverse Private High Schools in Georgia

    High School Senior: Academe of the Oaks is a Waldorf school. When I came to the school for a visitation day, I was very nervous. Based off of their website, I didn't think that I had what it took to "survive" at the school. The students were nice and weird at the same time, and some of the work was very new to me. Now that I have been attending Academe of the Oaks I have a completely different view about the school. I am the first Muslim to attend this school, and hopefully the first one to graduate. When I first came to the school, I felt like I had to set the best example, because I felt like I had to "represent Muslims". Luckily, I found out that I could be myself, while still giving them a positive image of Muslims/Islam. The teachers expect a lot from the students, but they really want us to succeed and be prepared for college, and for the rest of our lives. At first, the work and teaching methods were hard to adjust to, but now I know that as long as I do my best, I should be fine. This school has really pushed be to be more socially active, as well as helped develop my speech skills. One of the best things that I like about this school is how art is incorporated in almost every subject. My drawing skills have improved so much since I joined this school, and for that I am extremely grateful. I know look at pictures in a completely different way. And not only art as in drawings or paintings, but art expressed in poetry, and monologues, plays, the list goes on and on. I am so grateful and blessed to be at this school and I can't imagine myself being anywhere else.
