Sarah Crowe, 10th grade parent

The confidence my daughter has in herself since coming here has been really amazing. She’s come out of her shell and I think has become more herself than I’ve ever seen her before. Everybody is allowed to be an individual here, she doesn’t feel like she has to dress like everybody else, or behave the same way. And everyone accepts the differences, even celebrates them.
