I chose Ohio Hi-Point because: 

I have dreamed of being a teacher since I was a child, and I wanted a head start on that dream.

At Ohio Hi-Point, I'm involved in the following activities: 

FCCLA, United Way, and our student led mental health program

My favorite part about Ohio Hi-Point is: 

Going out to lab site and seeing the students. I enjoy every moment when seeing the children smile.

My most memorable moment at Ohio Hi-Point was: 

Going out to lab site on my birthday. The teachers all gave me a card with all the students signatures on it. Their scribble like signatures will be something I keep forever.

What surprised me most about Ohio Hi-Point was: 

How invested each teacher is in their students. I can tell every teacher truly cares about us succeeding.

The teacher who has had the biggest impact on me is: 

I can’t pick just one specifically, they’re all great teachers. I’ve been around Mrs. Walls the most though, and she made me more excited about teaching than I was before I came here.

My advice to students who may be looking to apply to Ohio Hi-Point is: 

If you come to Hi-Point, don’t change your mind when you get here. To some it may be hard missing their home school, but it’s nice to know that you’ll have a career out of high school to at least have until you get your dream job.

After graduation: 

I am attending college.
