Quote from teacher: “For Mary, every day is a fresh opportunity to learn and to challenge herself,” said Adele Dahlin, English teacher and IB Diploma Coordinator. “In and out of class, she demonstrates leadership and diligence without any fanfare or complaining. Her keen intellect and great sense of humor complete the picture of a true student and a wonderful person.”
