Quote from teacher: “Patrick is a student in my AP Physics class,” said Scott Secrest, physics teacher and science department chairman. “He is taking four AP classes and I have found that he balances his coursework with extracurricular activities very well. He works ahead and has a strong work ethic. He is a hard working student who asks questions and perseveres until he understands the concept. Because of these characteristics, I believe he will be successful in the future.”
