My Name is Alexis. I graduated from St. John's Elementary in San Francisco. The transition from 8th grade to high school was bittersweet. Although I was filled with excitement, I also felt nervous and I didn't know what to expect. As an incoming freshmen, my sister was an incoming senior. Having my sister at the same school as me gave me a comforting feeling. My feelings of nervousness suddenly vanished when I realized that everyone else in my class felt the same way as I did. Academically, my elementary school greatly prepared me for high school, and Sacred Heart is definitely a challenging school. My favorite subject is Spanish. I love learning a new language because I love the challenge. Whenever I feel like I am struggling, I know that I can go to my teachers and ask for help. I do feel like I am challenged but I am always able to work through it.

I attended St. Peter's for all of my grammar school years K-8, and then went on to a very rigorous high school at St. Ignatius College Prep. I had great teachers, and I am still great friends some of the people I've known since Kindergarten. I believe that a private school education (especially in a small city like SF) is a great platform to build off of for a better future, but it really depends on how much work you are willing to put into it.
