Favorite Class at CRLS
AP language and composition (English). In elementary school I learned how to read, in middle school I learned what to read, and standard high school English I learned why to read, but AP language teaches us to learn from reading.

Favorite Teacher
Ms. Bannon. Since freshman year English, Ms. Bannon has been purely awesome. She's sincere and I could come for help for life and school. She is all ears when it comes to listening. She opened my eyes to the power of literature and gave me notebooks to write down my thoughts, which is the best gift I ever got from a teacher.

What did you like most about CRLS? Why?
Since freshman year, I have loved the vibrancy of Cambridge culture reflected in the student body.

What is something people unfamiliar with CRLS should know about the school? Why? 
CRLS has the potential to be everything you want it to be if you take advantage of its various opportunities.

Advice to Incoming Freshmen
You'll never go as far as you can trying to be someone else. My favorite quote: "Today you are you, that is truer than true, there is no one alive who is your than you."
