    Teachers: My most memorable times have been at Dublin Coffman High School. The students, teachers and all of the activities have molded me into the person I am today. My sophomore year, my sister was killed in a tragic car accident. THis was a very difficult time for me. It was very hard to get back into school and activities. However, without guidance and support from my peers and teachers, I would not have been able to continue with everyday life. They all helped me so much.

    I have a desire to "give back" to a school and community that have given me so many opportunities that are priceless. I have the hope to major in special education in college, as that is my passion. After college, I aspire to come back to Coffman and work in the Special Education Department and also coach the Men's Golf Team. It would be a dream of mine to be part of the "Dublin Coffman Golf Dynasty" that was created a long time ago, once again.

    For the past four years, I have been involved in the Peer Collaboration Program at Coffman, working with kids that have learning disabilities. This has brought a great connection with students and teachers that I would not trade for anything. It has taught me to be more compassionate, forgiving and patient person.

    The people at Dublin Coffman have been great to me. Wonderful administration, students and staff have surrounded me and for that I am forever grateful. I hope someday, I can do the same for a student like me.

    Student Culture & Diversity: There are tons of different students varying in religion, race, and sexuality. We have a prominent Asian-American population and most students are very accepting of each other. Through classes and extracurriculars, I've met people from all sorts of backgrounds and for the most part, we appreciate each other's differences. We have a multi-cultural club, LGBT Alliance, and outside of school, Coffman also has a Young Life chapter. There are many ways to get involved culturally. For the most part, everyone accepts each other for who they are, most students are laid back and don't judge, which is an awesome environment.

    Academics: Academics are amazing throughout the Dublin City school district. At the high school level, they offer regular, honors, AP, and IB classes. Honors is on a 4.5 scale, AP and IB are on a 5.0 scale. AP classes are more traditional and straightforward; students need to be ready to go at a fast pace and memorize a lot of information to spit out on tests. IB on the other hand, slows down and zooms in, it gives you the opportunity to develop your own opinions on subject matter, and assessments are usually essays. The most rigorous path is the IB Diploma Programme where students must take 6 IB classes and participate in lots of testing throughout the year. Most students take a variety of different classes, for my junior year, I'm taking three AP classes and two IB classes based on my varying learning styles in those subjects. Dublin also offers many academies that students can participate in to get a taste on a particular field. Coffman hosts the Engineering academy, otherwise, students must travel to Jerome or Scioto for other academies. For me, the scheduling process can be very stressful because there are too many great classes to choose from, and I always want to compete with my peers. For less motivated students, it's probably not that big of a deal. Classes unique to Coffman include Anatomy and Physiology, where students dissect cats, and we also have a new class called IB Further Math, which is college level math beyond calculus, and throughout the world, there are only 150 students, this year, 15 of them are at Coffman! Another popular class is AP American Studies, which is Honors English II and AP US History in a combined class for two periods. It's my favorite class and I have learned so much about society and human interactions, while developing my writing style.

    Health & Safety: I feel very safe at Coffman, we have a city police officer here full time, and he's a really nice guy and cares about the safety of the students. We have really good safety drill procedures that vary depending on where an intruder is in the building.

    Extracurriculars: Extracurricular activities are off the charts. If you want to be involved in something you care about, there's most likely a club or a class for it, and if not, you can start your own club with a teacher advisor and approval from administration. I'm a class president on student council, which is probably the most competitive student organization with the most time commitment. We plan school events, decorate for dances, and volunteer in the community. I've built lots of great relationships and have learned how to lead a group of people and plan ahead with minimal help from teachers. I'm also involved in the school newspaper, which is both a club and a class, and the other girls on staff are some of my best friends. I've also been a little involved in Medical Club, Psychology Club, and Key Club. JSA is also HUGE here, many students have developed political awareness from taking part in it, and the program is a great social opportunity, but many students take it really seriously and are involved in statewide conference leadership positions. The extracurricular activities give students even more opportunities to pursue their passions and meet new people who share their interests.
