I’m glad Zakiya is at Germantown High School because I believe the school offers students the opportunity to build skills that will benefit them in the future. Zakiya has grown a lot with the help of her teachers and gained more confidence each academic school year. I’m especially pleased with the course offerings and the level of instruction at GHS. The teachers are very supportive and committed to the students. I believe Zakiya has benefited from the relationships she has built with students in band and other campus clubs. Each year at least one teacher has taken her under his or her wings and helped her to realize her potential. These teachers have played an important role in helping her succeed and I appreciate the contribution each one has provided during her journey. I know she can utilize those skills as she pursues higher education and will continue to excel.
