“I know that when I first started out I just really struggled in most of my classes and that the teachers were some of the most helpful teachers that I had ever come across and they were always willing to help me and they made it easier for me to approach them and say, ‘I don‘t understand what I’m doing in this class, can you please help me.’”
—Abena Prempeh (class of 2016)
“What helped that rough transition from 8th grade to 9th grade probably would be going to teachers in after hours.”
