Favorite Class at CRLS
History is kind of like the laboratory for societies and civilizations. It provides the only set of data that can tell us what makes a society function and what doesn't. It helps us understand people, especially those with different origins and backgrounds than us. And, most importantly, it supplies evidence as to how those different people can interconnect and create new shared history, identity, and moral understanding.

Favorite Teacher
Ms. Otty is someone who loves to learn just as much as she wants her students to learn. Her classes always get to hear about the podcast she listened to on the way to school that morning, the headline that most recently caught her attention, or the last book that she read. Any student that's lucky enough to have her as their teacher is immersed in the latest, most important, and often overlooked world news. Ms. Otty truly cares about all of her students and understands how to support and teach different people in different ways.

What are some of the out-of-school time (OST) programs that you participated in between grades 6 - 12?

How did being enrolled in any OST program(s) contribute to your success in and out of high school?

What did you like most about CRLS? Why?
There are a lot of problems at CRLS, but the students here are not afraid or reluctant to recognize and address these problems no matter how many challenges or obstacles stand in their way.

What is something people unfamiliar with CRLS should know about the school? Why? 
I think that CRLS looks very different from the inside than what it looks like from the outside. Without getting very specific, it claims to be many things that it isn't and claims not to be many things that it is. I guess that's true for everything though: it's really just a work in progress.

Advice to Incoming Freshmen
I still don't know what the different zones mean or which staircases go to the fifth floor, so don't worry if you're confused at first because I'm confused to this day.
