Most Meaningful Activity
Outdoor Track and Indoor Track are at the top, as I get to connect with people I don't usually connect with, which is important for me. Running is significantly less fun, however!

Reflections on Learning
Every class that I have had with more than three friends has been great. My sophomore English class was probably one of the best class environments and best class rosters I've ever had. Even though it was in my first year of high school, the class felt laid back despite the workload.
Dr. Rezelman has had the greatest impact, no doubt. His teaching and story-telling are so intricately interwoven that I forget I'm learning sometimes. On top of that, his stories are entertaining.
A Quick Word About Jacob
“As his advisor, I have had ample opportunity to witness Jacob’s friendly and easygoing manner with his peers. He laughs easily and often. I know him as a teacher, not a friend, but I imagine he would be fiercely loyal as the latter. Even as a student he frequently will come up to me and ask ‘and how are things going for you, Doc?’ His most important role is as an enthusiastic cheerleader for his peers. I think the world of this young man. He is an A++ human being who will make whatever university community he joins a happier and better collection of people.” ~ Dr. David Rezelman, Jacob’s International Relations and U.S. History Teacher and Advisor
