Grad­u­at­ing Grade: 12

“Don’t be afraid to ask for help – the teach­ers are ex­tremely car­ing and are al­ways will­ing to help.”

What will you miss most about TFS? The com­mu­nity. There is some­thing so in­cred­i­ble about spend­ing my life sur­rounded by the same peo­ple in the same en­vi­ron­ment for 15 years. I cre­ated last­ing friend­ships, and I will never for­get the mo­ments I shared with my grad­u­at­ing class. What is one piece of ad­vice you would give to TFS

stu­dents? I’d tell them to re­mem­ber that aca­demics are im­por­tant and to work as hard as they can but to un­der­stand that fail­ing one test or hav­ing dif­fi­cul­ties in a class isn’t im­por­tant in the grand scheme of things. Mid­dle school and high school are a tiny por­tion of our lives, and they are the years where you be­gin to iden­tify what your pas­sions are. How do you think TFS has pre­pared you for life af­ter grad­u­a­tion? The rig­or­ous aca­demic pro­gram as well as the IB di­ploma pro­gram have al­lowed me to de­velop a strong work ethic, which I think will help me man­age the aca­demic dif­fi­culty of univer­sity. TFS has also helped me un­der­stand the im­por­tance of bal­ance be­tween aca­demics and other ac­tiv­i­ties and how to man­age my time prop­erly, which will be ben­e­fi­cial for life af­ter grad­u­a­tion.
