District of Columbia
Opportunity Scholarship Program
I am a freshman at Archbishop Carroll High School. I really love it. The public middle school I went to wasn’t all that good – it was a bad school. My high school is way better, very different.
At my public middle school, the other students’ behavior wasn’t the best. My new high school offers a lot of good classes. It’s way better.
Receiving a scholarship to go to a private school makes me very happy. I’ll have the opportunity to get into a good college, hopefully Howard University or Georgetown University. I’d like to become an architect.
My school is more like a family than my former school. It has more discipline and all of the teachers are very nice. It’s strict, but not too strict. I feel safer and happy there because it feels like a family.
