Favorite aspect of your school: The variety of opportunities offered in the classroom and outside of school with lots of class options, college course, sports, clubs, and activities.
If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? As a member of NHS one our community service projects were going to one of the elementary schools for half the day, and we got to play with them at recess and join them in the classroom. This was very rewarding for me because not only was I able to spend time with the youth but I was also able to help them through math problems, read with them, and be a good role model for them.
