I've been very surprised with the Germantown High School experience. Reilly has attended private schools since she was in kindergarten. This is her first year (10th Grade) at a public school, and I was concerned because of the size of the school and the age at which she's starting. Everyone has been extremely helpful in helping Reilly get acclimated. She's also made some great new friends.
Reilly's real passion is in the visual arts. I've been blown away with the quality of the staff in the CAPA program and their willingness to spend extra time with Reilly and challenge her. She also very much wanted to attend a school with a more diverse student body than what she has previously experienced. I've been very pleased that she's been able to make friends with kids from as many diverse backgrounds as she has. The change to Germantown has been a great experience for Reilly and I couldn't be more pleased.
