What do you remember most about your time at Classical and how has your time there shaped you?
Classical has always been seen as the epitome of excellence in a public high school education. I remember the high expectations that came along with the Classical name. To me, being a Classical student meant that I had to do my best in all areas of my life to meet those high expectations. I believe having those standards inculcated in me as a teen has molded the way that I interact in the world today. I am always striving to meet high ideals.
