By Genna Fidati, 8th Grader
I started at High Meadows five years ago, when I was in the Third Grade. Now I am in Eighth, my last year here, and I have had nothing but positive experiences. One of the best things about High Meadows is that it encourages individuality. My classmates and friends accept me for who I am, which I know doesn’t always happen at other middle schools. High Meadows has many different types of people and is very open to diversity, which makes it a special place.
I also love High Meadows because of the connection that students have with teachers. Our teachers understand that not all subjects come easily to all students, and they often present material in interesting and innovative ways so that we all can learn. Our teachers also respect students. They value our input and want us to participate in our learning. Even though we are learning from them, we students feel as if our teachers are our friends. We know we can count on them to support us and help us.
I love that High Meadows is open to and accepting of all types of people, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or anything else that may set someone apart from others. I have gotten a great education here, and although I will be sad when this year is over and I go on to high school, I know High Meadows has prepared me for that step.
