I was the Valedictorian of the 2014 graduating class. I currently attend The University of Texas at Austin where I was invited to join one of their honors programs. Like every school, you have to put in the effort to get results out of your time there. Teachers do not hand you answers on a silver platter, and whoever says that, well, should look at their grades and reflect. The school gave me a chance to be who I really was and am today without being looked at as completely odd. The teachers don't want you to fail. If they set me up for failure, how could I possibly be at the stage that I am at now? The teachers go out of their way to help you be a better student. I took AP Chemistry, and it took up a good amount of time, but putting in the amount of effort that I put in, I was able to achieve a successful grade. Also, math is not anywhere close to a subject that I am good at. The math teacher, however, helped me by taking the time out of her day to go over, step by step, every single problem. Additionally, the school catered to me by setting up a course over the summer that helped me review general math and algebra, which was clearly not my subject.

Alexander students honestly care about each other more than at any other school they make the school not only the best place to learn, they make it one of the most enjoyable places to be. I am attending the perfect school. I am finally happy. It s as if a great weight has been lifted from my shoulders. The moment I walked in I knew The Alexander School was the place for me, I have turned my life around for the better, and for that, I have to thank my family at TAS.
