I transferred to Stanbridge as a sophomore, and since then I have learned many life skills. I know how to fill out a job application, how to be more patient, how to make furniture out of wood and improve my carpentry skills, and how to solve problems in different ways.
At Stanbridge I’ve been able to go on a number of memorable trips. One of my favorite field trips is the Close Up Washington, DC trip in 2015. My favorite parts about the trip includes seeing all the monuments with my classmates, sightseeing around the capital, and going to the Smithsonian museums with the teachers. Another one of my favorite field trips is the Web of life experiential trip at the Wolf School in Aptos. We did team building activities, we played volleyball, and I came away with new friendships and a lot of good memories.
I have learned even more social skills than I knew before I came to Stanbridge, and this is due to the many people who have helped me on my journey so far. I’d like to thank my parents and my grandparents for supporting me. Thank you John Barnett, Allison St. John, Jay Huston, and many other staff members who have helped me on my journey. I’m hoping to get a full-time job soon, and I’m leaving Stanbridge confident of my future.
