I visited the school and fell in love before I even stepped out of the car. I saw the wide open campus with the beautiful pond and Detweiler House and I thought it would be amazing to be able to walk outside from class to class. I walked from class to class seeing that teachers actually teach their classes and students actually pay attention to what is being taught. Not only that, but the style of teaching is so different; it’s hands-on and interactive instead of writing down what’s on the board in front of you.
By far, my two favorite things that day were seeing the art building, and being free to walk around the campus. The open campus was amazing. It was great to be able to breathe fresh air. The art building is open and free for anyone to enter. I realized I could play soccer and create the art I was always interested in, and be completely devoted to both. I was sold.
