Student, Columbia River High School, Class of 2017,
The typical student of Columbia River High School is outgoing, intelligent, and not afraid to stand out. Therefore, the type of person that should attend River should be able to express themselves without fear of being judged, seeing as my school is a safe place for someone to be themself with clubs such as the gay straight alliance club, which aims to bring a safe atmosphere for everybody, no matter their sexuality. Additionally, a River student should be hard working. Columbia River is known for its ambitious students participating in the International Baccalaureate program, or in short, the IB program. In this program, students are encouraged to take risks, be intuitive, and work hard in order to be prepared for college. Finally, a student wishing to enroll in Columbia River High School should be willing to take risks. High school can be a scary place, but at River we chose to take risks in order to better ourselves and our community. Therefore a student at Columbia River High School is and should be intelligent, outgoing, and not afraid to take risks.
