Quote from teacher: "Ariana is obviously an excellent student, said Gary Thompson, Director. "She is also one of our true leaders. Many people work hard to get good grades, but an understanding of how to be an effective leader doesn't come as easy. Ariana is constantly involved in school activities, and is always in a leadership position. We have many activities that are 'out of the norm' for most schools. Running thses activities successfully requires student leadership and students who understand how to help make things happen. Ariana has always been one of the first students we turn to on these occasions."
