In short, I am both a senior in high school and a college student at Ivy Tech Community College. This experience has taught me responsibility and accountability and I learned many things ever since my freshman year in high school. I work well with Microsoft Office functions such as Word, Powerpoint, and Excel. My work ethic alone is a big factor of my experience. I was elected Secretary of Student Government during my junior year of high school and also participated in basketball each season. I've taken AP United States History and AP Environmental Science. 21st Century Charter School has definitely prepared me for college!

The things that I enjoy the most about 21st Century Charter School is that the school within itself is a great experience for anyone to pursue a great education. The teachers and staff all work together one on one with students to help them learn and understand what the fundamentals of the lectures are. The school taught me to always stride towards success and to never give up on something that I truly believe in, honestly I can say if my parents didn't enroll me into a school like 21st Century Charter School, I wouldn't have a great education in my own opinion. I recommend many parents and students to all give 21st Century CHarter School a chance to enlighten their views not only on education itself but also on their lives.

The extracurricular opportunities at 21st Century Charter School are very extraneous. There are a lot of things for students to get into. There is the anime club, charm club, 21st Century Student Ambassadors, National Honor Society, prom/homecoming committee, booster club, poetry club, debate teams, and more. The sponsors are very helpful and they look after the club making sure everything is run smoothly.
