“Rich Richards” I heard Doctor Spencer call my name as I walked up to the podium at graduation. “Congratulations, Rich. It has been a pleasure having you here at Davidson College”. These are the words that students attending a school of excellence hear at their college graduation. Becoming a school of excellence is the springboard for a bright future in life. I believe that becoming a school of excellence helps students get into college, drives students to work harder, and is less expensive and more efficient than private schools.
First, becoming a school of excellence helps students in getting into college. Good colleges recognize excellence in academics and Davidson IB fits a school of excellence more than any other middle school in North Carolina. An example of this is, my cousin James Watson who attended Collegiate Middle in Richmond Virginia, a school of excellence. He made a 1520 on the SAT and is now attending The University of Virginia on a scholarship. Many children dream of attending a school of excellence and Davidson IB has been given that opportunity. Attending a school of excellence can make a huge difference in children’s lives that are hoping to go to college.
Next, going to a school of excellence is less expensive as well as more efficient than private schools. Most kids have to pay 100 times more than we have to spend at Davidson IB, and our school of excellence also serves a better education. As evidence, I was going to attend Cannon School until I got into Davidson IB Middle. I was very lucky to get into this school of excellence because tuition a Cannon School is $7,000 a year. Attending a public school of excellence such as Davidson IB Middle is a great opportunity for less fortunate kids who are concentrating on academics.
Why I Wish to Attend College I have always been the type of person who has a tremendous amount of desire to achieve. I want to be somebody. I want to make a difference in my community. As a result I set four major goals for myself during my junior year in high school. The first of these goals is completing my high school education with at least a 3. 0 grade point average or above. The second goal ...
Furthermore, being a part of something such as a school of excellence drives students to work harder than they normally. Just being a part of such an honorable program makes students want to get good grades and make their school proud. For Example, students who learn at school such as Alexander Middle have no passion for learning. At Davidson IB learning is something that makes a person proud. Being a part of a school of excellence drives students and makes them get a better education that they could get anywhere else.
In conclusion, becoming a school of excellence means more than anyone can imagine. It is evident that schools of excellence provide a wonderful education and make lives of children better.
