Since my first year at Stony Point, I have had a wonderful experience, especially since I decided to join the International Baccalaureate program. Even in ninth grade, my classmates were friendly, the teachers were helpful, and the overall school environment was welcoming and enjoyable. There is a variety of courses and academies available for students to take, the food is pretty good, and there are many clubs that one can join. Although the workload for IB and AP courses may be heavy, the teachers and counselors do all they can to help you out through the process, and the courses are interesting and engaging. Lastly, the College Forward program at Stony Point has been really beneficial because it allowed me to improve my writing and test-taking skills and also be informed about colleges, financial aid, and scholarships. On the other hand, I believe there should be more entertaining school events and better promotion of the IB program, since there are few people currently in IB.
