I can confidently say that the STEAM school has prepared me for the level of rigor I may encounter in college courses while exposing me to a diverse group of peers and professionals.

I feel that there are a lot more teachers and grownups willing to support you here – not just in learning but also in your emotions and making sure you are feeling alright.

My teacher Mrs. Creighton makes school fun. With all the teachers, principals and AP they do fun stuff.

My school is special because of my friends, and the principal is always here for me and us and we learn awesome things.

Natalia Hillmeddo, Parker School

I would say that STEAM is a very encouraging environment. The counselors are almost always there to help you with issues you may be dealing with inside as well as outside of school. The teachers also try to encourage us when we aren't keeping up to date. But they are still understanding and caring.

Deanna Cummings, MV STEAM Academy

There are many experiences, fun activities and clubs that can bring out the creativity within each of us. There are opportunities for college credit. There are so many diverse talented people here.

Montay Campbell, Mount Vernon High School
 

I like to do math the best at my school because it is amazing and fun. I like using the cubes and other math things to help me figure out problems.

Owen Bravo, Columbus

Hard work pays off. In the end, no matter how you look at it the more effort you put in the more you get out of it. The teachers really help me put my best foot forward, which allows me to try harder.

Deshawn Wallen ’22, MV STEAM Academy

School is a melting pot of cultures, so you learn and have different perspectives.

Something that makes my school special is the school’s principal. She works very hard to put together the best school possible. She is a true Holmes School Hero. And, our whole school appreciates her very much.

I like that my school has a drumline. I have a chance to practice doing something that I LOVE!!

Tristan Paul, Edward Williams School

I like the preps because I get to learn different things about art, music, PE, and media. In every activity, I learn more and more about music and art. I learn about abstract art, how to play the ukulele, how to play basketball, and poems.

Eliana Dewar, Traphagen School

What makes my school special is that some of the staff have great qualities to have the students look up to them.
