Quote from teacher: “Danielle is the type of student that challenges herself to get the most out of her abilities,” said Andrew Hemminger, school counselor. “She has thrived within the most challenging curriculum available to her because she is very gifted, but more so because she works extremely hard. There is no doubt that she will be greatly successful in life.”
