Senior: Hammonton High School provided me with the most eclectic high school experience I could have asked for. I loved the academic environment in which I was able to prosper thanks to amazing teachers, competitive classmates, and innumerable opportunities. I was also able to compete in a competitive athletic conference as a four year member of the varsity field hockey team. I was involved in several clubs and organizations like: National Honor Society, Student Council, Executive Homeroom, Green Club, World Language Club, and Future Nurses Club- which all provided me with so many unique experiences in which I learned more than I ever expected. The only thing that Hammonton High School should change is its grade scale outline. While some of my classes have been on the AP scale, they all haven't, and it's frustrating to know that my GPA could've been approximately a whole point higher if my high school was on the ten point scale like millions of others around the country.

William Davies Middle School
- Hamilton Township School District, NJ
High School Senior: Being at my high school gave me so many so opportunities . I could try anything I wanted , be anything I wanted , accomplish anything I wanted . They give you so many events and responsibilities in this school that there's no specific time you'll be heading home because you know there's so much to still do here . Run for president , join the Spanish interest club , be apart of the prom committee , help build the garden outside our library , its all endless and random . This school is unique because not only do our activities keep us busy and happy , our faculty and staff keeps us happy. We treat each other like family and enforce our school pride on anyone and everyone. Most of our teachers were students at this school. Everyone has their own reason as to why they love my high school and would come back. But that's the thing , EVERYONE has a reason .

Roanoke Catholic School

Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.
