Student, John Hay Early College High School, Class of 2016,
The type of students that we would normally see as a bad fit for our school would be the student who does not try. It's all laid out in front of you on a golden platter, do not be so embarrassed about it that you do not pick up the spoon. The teachers want you to suceed and get ahead, they wouldn't give you so man opportunities if they wanted you to fail. You are only holding yourself back if you come here and don't try your best, because it's better to try and fail then to do nothing and fail.
