为什么选择pp电子?

“It’s easy for me to tout the benefits of a pp电子平台 education," Head of School John Packard writes in pp电子平台's 大学宣传册. "But we want you to hear from students who are just like you — students who want to be challenged, students who are only beginning to discover their passions." So, we polled students and asked them what brought them to our lovely 校园; what made them realize that pp电子 was the right choice.

As the comments show, there are so many reasons to love our special school.

"Before coming to pp电子, I actually didn't enjoy school that much," said Maddie Hesse ’20. "I felt tons of pressure and was so stressed that I forgot about learning and just tried to complete my homework well enough to earn 'good' grades. But when I came to pp电子, everything changed. 第一次, 我没有感到持续的压力 and I was able to learn for myself, just because I was genuinely interested. I truly fell in love with learning and soon found myself going above and beyond. I never settled for the bare minimum anymore. 我变成了一个超级书呆子, even though I do prefer the term 'intellectually curious,' and am incredibly grateful to pp电子 for fostering this passion in me."

The teachers have been key for Amy Del Cid '22. "pp电子 has been the first place in my learning career where I felt that teachers deeply care for their students," 她说. "They are supportive and make an effort to reach out to students to check up on them. They make time available for one-on-one help and want to see students succeed."

Saisha Prabhakar '22欣赏 挑战. "pp电子 has fed my hunger for learning with captivating courses”,她说. "I've become more comfortable voicing my thoughts and have grown immensely, all due to the people I'm surrounded by and experiences and opportunities that've come my way."

Location was a big factor that Sam Lee '22 to decide to attend pp电子. "pp电子的地理位置很好,”她解释说. "We have good restaurants and ice cream shops close to 校园, pp电子定期乘坐巴士去波士顿 在周末的时候."

"People are very supportive of positive things at pp电子," Lee added. “学生和教师都去观看 体育 游戏, 戏剧表演 和乐队 音乐会 为彼此加油. This atmosphere allows me to reach out of my box to try new things because I know my decisions will be respected and supported."

The same goes for Katharine Gutkoski '22, who found herself surprised to embrace a sport at pp电子. "pp电子在很多方面帮助我成长”,她说. "And I've enjoyed pushing myself in new ways. I didn't consider myself an athlete but thanks to the athletic requirement, I tried volleyball for the first time and I loved it!"

If community matters to you, consider pp电子, urges Maddy Dombal '22. "pp电子 has allowed me to become a part of a wide range of communities: classrooms, 团队, 俱乐部, 宿舍, friends and advisories; and has taught me what it means to have a different role in each,”她说. "Through immense support in all areas of life, I've been able to excel as a student, athlete and overall person."

“Being part of the pp电子 community has given our children so many gifts: friendships to last a lifetime, memorable experiences inside and outside of the classroom and deep, personal connections with faculty/staff/dorm parents/coaches that are truly one of a kind. 支持, engaging pp电子 environment propels students to aspire to reach personal goals, while always cheering on others to do the same.”
