Hi, my name is Melanie, and I go to St. Marys High school. I enjoy reading a lot but also love to hang out with my friends. I am very outgoing and love adventures.
My family chose St. Marys for me because they wanted a better education for me and a place that would push me to do better. I love that at my school they encourage me to do better and put me through many situations that make me think harder or outside the box. I also love that there are many clubs that we can choose because that choice opens up our minds to do more and to learn more. Lastly, I like the opportunities we have for college. AP classes are available so we can start college while in high school.
This school has allowed me to have more knowledge and increased my desire to learn, although it can be hard sometimes it is a challenge that helps me.

I do believe more families should have the same privilege I’ve had in exercising school choice. There are a lot of families and students who would do anything to get a scholarship and be able to go to a good school. Public school can be good but there are a lot where they don’t push you to do better and will teach you stuff that is not helpful.
School choice is very important to me because it allows us to reach for more knowledge. We dont just get the minimum amount and stay there, but learn to want more.
