“This may be the most important thing we do for public education in our lifetimes.”
“I believe a school should be fun and rigorous in equal measure. Too rigorous and it won’t be fun. Too fun and you’ll never learn to spell rigorous.”
“I believe in myself.”
“I believe that with perseverance and a positive attitude anything is possible.”
“I believe I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it weren’t for this school.”
“I believe I have the confidence to stretch myself and not settle for what feels okay, but to question and seek different answers.”
“I believe an education at ACS is like a best friend. It walks with you, hand in hand, as the lessons of life unfold. It teaches you the art of thinking and discovery. It empowers you to be true to yourself, and it lasts a lifetime.”
“I believe that if I reach a high level of self-knowledge and inner peace, I can help to make the world just a little bit better.”
“I believe in learning through experience. I believe in exploration. I believe in science and art. In music. Outdoor education. Indoor education. Creativity. Adventure. Family. Beauty. Messiness. Curiosity. I believe in learning, always.”
“I believe in true love. In mystery. In adventure, and taking risks. I believe in people. I believe in being informed and making good decisions. In democracy, and using your voice. I believe in myself.”
