I am glad that Elijah is at Germantown High after watching him grow over these last three years into such a dedicated and disciplined young man. He spends many hours after school participating in activities and has developed a close-knit group of friends. I feel that Germantown is a safe campus, and I appreciate the high presence of faculty, staff, and security. Elijah has learned to manage his time effectively in order to complete all the tasks required of students in the IB program. I feel that Germantown High and the IB program are preparing Elijah for college, and he will less likely suffer some of the typical setbacks that other young college students encounter in making that transition. Incidentally, his family and I were very pleased when Germantown added an Orchestra program so that Elijah could continue with his violin studies from middle school.
