    Extracurriculars: Very diverse selection of extracurricular activities, with more activities than most public high schools around the state. However, these activities do not get nearly enough recognition from administration.

    Sports & Fitness: Like most other high schools, most of the focus and attention goes to sports in general.

    Resources & Facilities: I've always admired my school's use of technology in the classroom setting. We utilize every aspect of what we have available, and students are able to learn to the best of their ability because of it. We also offer a wide variety of resources to better students learning such as peer and teacher tutoring, college admissions counselors as well as guidance counselors, and state of the art facilities.

    Overall Experience: If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't change where I attended high school for a minute. I have made so many incredible memories in this school that it's overwhelming to look back at the past four years and think about how quickly time flew. But it did. I am a senior now. Graduation is right around the corner. I am so ready for college and new experiences, but I am not so sure if I'm ready to leave behind the experiences I had at SBA. The insanity that is homecoming week, the pep rallies, the Friday nights spent cheering on my eagles, the retreats, the teachers who have watched me grow and shaped me into the person I am today, and most importantly, the family I have gained over the past four years. That is one aspect of St. Benedict that makes it unique--family. Yeah, your typical family is blood-related, but some of the most amazing memories I have of high school are with my second family at SBA. We've been through hard times together, and I can't remember one single time where we didn't come together to lean on each other for support. Even in our darkest of times, we found strength through each other. This school has brought me to meet and befriend people who I never would have expected to become friends with. The bonds we've created are indescribable. I am truly going to miss every single person I leave behind when I go to college. But I know that the memories we've shared will live on forever. As two of my favorite Disney songs go, it's the "Circle of Life" that we have to leave each other, but the message I have for everyone to remember is that "You'll be in my heart, from this day on, now and forever."
