Like a lot of kids I grew up with, my parents moved to East Greenwich for the public schools. They wanted the absolute best for their kids while keeping them in the public school system. It's been almost five years since I attended East Greenwich High School and to this day, I look back on it as a very positive experience.
School has never been easy for me. While I may have excelled skills in the Arts, subjects like math and science have always been a real struggle for me. I was friends with the smartest kids in the class and constantly felt pressure to do better because of it. If it weren't for the amazing staff at EGHS, I do not think I would have made it into the colleges that I did. There was one teacher in particular that really made a difference for me and that is Mr. Lenox. Junior year Chemistry was an absolute nightmare that just didn't make sense to me. Mr. Lenox wasn't my teacher, nor had he ever been, but he stayed with me after school twice a week for the whole year and would help me with my work until I was able to understand it. It is because of him and his dedication to find solutions for me that I was able to bring my D's up to B's. The fact that Mr Lenox had never even had me as a student and was so determined to help me succeed says a lot about just how much EGHS cares about their teachers and the experience that they are going to provide for their students. There are so many teachers at EGHS that have helped me grow tremendously as a student and as a person and this is just one small example.
