“I started at OM middle school I believe fall of 1999. I then went to the high School fall of 2001. My senior year I did a transition program and ended up being with kids from the CRUE program. That was fun!
I came to Open Meadow because my old school had shut down. I went to a lot of different schools to see which one would be the best fit. Open Meadow was the best fit for me and my needs. I made friends at Open Meadow who treated me nicely. I didn’t get bullied anymore. The teachers made everything easy for me. I never had to worry about being picked on, or bullied at Open Meadow. (Thanks Mike Navarro and Tab Waterman!)
My time at Open shows up a lot today when I do my art. If it wasn’t for going to Open Meadow, I wouldn’t be as into art as I am now. Open Meadow gave me the courage to open up my creative side. Also when I work on my math skills. Math is something I never thought I could do very well but that could be because I never had a teacher go through it with me like Mark Burton. (Thanks Mark!)
All the teachers I have had through my time with Open Meadow are important to me. Without them I wouldn’t have been able to succeed in graduating high school. I love that even though it’s been almost 17 years since I graduated from Open Meadow high school, and even longer since graduating from the middle school, I still have an awesome connection with some of my teachers. I love that Open School is still helping students succeed in their school career. Thank you for all that you guys do.”
