How many years have you been a student tour guide?
What is your favorite thing about GFS and why?
I like the school's open-minded approach for welcoming students and the many opportunities the school offers to students considering or coming to GFS. You can be a part of so many groups as a student and be equally accepted in each organization.
What extracurricular activities or student groups do you participate in?
Big Sibs, Varsity Lacrosse, Soccer, FOCUS, ANNO (yearbook), a DIS in Sports management and performance, and GFS tour guide.
What has been your favorite GFS experience? What made it so special?
My Monday mornings at GFS, sophomore year. Sophomore year, I was assigned a tour guide shift for Monday morning, the first period of the day. Although you would expect otherwise, I really enjoyed welcoming people into the GFS community as a tour guide and it really gave me a more positive outlook for the rest of my day and my week.
Parents often ask: "What makes GFS unique?" How would you answer that question?
At GFS, the teachers will push you to be your best, and so will your friends. But we move as a community and you always have a place at GFS, no matter your identity or your opinion. Candidly, like any school, we have our ups and downs. However, at GFS the staff and faculty work closely with the students to improve our community and education. Germantown Friends School is a unique school that aims to help students grow, and I will say that in every tour.
