Q. What is your favorite thing about JGS? What do you think makes it so different from your previous schools?

A. I think the best part about JGS is that I can relate to people. I also love how the teachers care about us and do everything possible to help. I think that JGS is different from other schools because they understand that we are kids and that we need help or a quick walk every once and a while.

Q. What is your favorite subject?

A. My favorite subject is Humanities because I get to learn about the history of the world and all the cool things that I never knew happened.

Q. Where are some of the places you’ve traveled, and which was your favorite?

A. I have been to a lot of the continental U.S., Hawaii, Canada, a lot of Western Europe and England, but my favorite is Spain. My father’s side of the family is Basque and we go there most summers for a few weeks. It’s a great easy beach lifestyle.

Q. Your classmates describe you as a very friendly, calm, and positive person. What characteristics do you most like about yourself?

A. I think I’m really funny and kind of an odd ball. I guess I like that.

Q. What do you enjoy doing outside of school?

A. Outside of school, there are mainly three things that I do: I play sports, play video games, and spend time with my family.

Q. What do you think you’d like to do (or be) as an adult?

A. Pilot or NTSB investigator.

Q. Can you tell us about a favorite memory

A. It’s kind of hard to pin one down. When my parents surprised me and brought home my first puppy, that was pretty cool.
