Quote from Teacher:  “Lark Yan is a brilliant young woman, who is currently taking 5 AP courses as part of a full course load, carries over a 4.5 GPA, was a National Semi-finalist for Speech and Debate, and has recently been named a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist,” said Abigail Cappel, Science teacher. “Believe it or not, these are not the qualities that I think make Lark so incredibly amazing. Lark shines because she is kind, humble, and giving of her talents. Lark shines because she works so hard, is so accomplished, and never once in the four years that I’ve known her has she complained about a teacher, a peer, or an assignment. Not only is Lark an outstanding science student, but as a teaching assistant she reports twice a week to help me with whatever is needed. I know she is incredibly busy with academic and extracurricular activities, but she always makes time to help out. I can’t wait to see what she accomplishes as she transitions from high school, into university, and then into the real world!”
