Student, Pender Early College, Class of 2016,
Nearly everyone I meet at this school truly values learning. Many of us understand that learning and academics do not have to be synonymous and learning is largely a personal endeavor, but that academia is a great tool through which to obtain and utilize knowledge. The students there are all driven and have set goals but flexible methods. The students as a whole are a very diverse, accepting, and intelligent group that have respect for each other, respect for the teachers, and are respected by teachers in return.
