I’ve spent a big part of my life at Delphian School. Thinking about saying goodbye is bittersweet, but I know that it’s time for the next chapter in my life to begin. Even though my time at Delphian has been amazing and surreal, I’m ready for what is to come next.

   I started here in Middle School on the International Entry Program and worked my way to becoming a Form 8 Graduate. From learning to tie a tie; to math, reading, history, logic, science and religion; to having my first girlfriend—I’ve learned so much here. One of the best experiences I had was a project where I held the position of junior varsity basketball head coach for two years. I was able to run my own basketball team. I created plays, ran practices, called time-outs and had full control of the team. Most importantly, I got to help my peers refine and develop their basketball skills so they can be ready for the varsity team next year. It was so rewarding to do this, especially since I had to use data from a lot of the courses on the program to help me succeed on this project.
