When did you come to GFS?
How many years have you been a student tour guide?
What is your favorite aspect of GFS and why?
My favorite aspect of GFS is the relationships I can create with my teachers. Teachers here want the best for you not only in their class, but in all aspects of your life. They are always willing to lend an ear and offer help. One of the major skills I will take away from my time at GFS is how to approach a teacher and establish those personal relationships.
What extracurricular activities or student groups do you participate in?
Winter and Spring Track and Field, Leader of Cooking Club, Leader of Divorce Support, Leader of Puzzle Club, Member of Community Action.
What has been your favorite GFS experience?
My favorite experience provided by GFS was my Junior Project. I spent the month assisting in an Autistic Support Classroom at a local elementary school. It was a life-changing experience and helped me to discover my passion for working with children with special needs.
Parents often ask: "What makes GFS unique?" How would you answer that question?
The basis of the core Quaker values, SPICES, creates an atmosphere on campus different from that of many schools. By honoring these Quaker values, it creates a space where both students and teachers alike are willing to learn from each other and allows for each student to feel like an individual in the classroom, rather than one of many.
