The Young Women's Leadership School of Astoria provides its students with many helpful resources, along with a variety of different extracurricular activities. There are always many things to look forward to when learning. During middle school, I was a very shy person. However, continuing my education in this school helped me grow as more outgoing person. The teachers in this school are always caring and make sure you have the availability to whatever it is you need. Their optimistic feelings towards their students really help encourage them to work hard and try to achieve their goals. Because every teacher has a unique style of teaching their students, it is very easy to understand the new materials that is being taught in the classroom. It is really easy to make new connections and friends. The school in general, is a very safe and enjoyable environment to be in. This school has taught me many things and is something I will never forget.

I enjoyed my time at The Young Women's Leadership School of Astoria. I was a student here since 6th grade, and they place a heavy value on community and sisterhood. I created friendships I will never forget, and since day one have been preparing for college. I only wish administration was more understanding to students' situations instead of having a "one solution fits all" approach. They need to start listening to the students' wants and needs, as opposed to remaining, worried about their reputation. However, I do love the Young Women's Leadership School of Astoria's technology passion. Every student get her own laptop and we have multiple coding classes.
I entered here ninth grade and before I was in a middle school that was really all over the place, and here everyone was so nice and different in a good way. The girls were very welcoming as well as teachers. The teachers were so sweet and kind, and I felt very comfortable. I used to so shy but as a senior now I am glad to say that this school changed me for the better and made me believe in myself and have much more confidence. I feel prepared to go on to college and if it wasn't for the strong STEM opportunities in this school, I probably wouldn't even know that engineering existed and wouldn't have majored in it, I found my interest here.
