Please share with us the reason you chose to enroll at SC Whitmore School.

I like being able to do my schoolwork at home.

How has your experience been so far? We’d also love for you to tell us about any challenges you’ve encountered and how you’ve been able to overcome them.

Everything has gone good for me so far. If I have a problem, I always reach out to my teachers for help so that I don’t get behind in my schoolwork.

What helped you learn to adjust to online learning the most?

I learned to adjust to online learning when COVID-19 happened, and we had to start doing our schoolwork from home. That’s when I realized I liked virtual school better.

Are there specific tools you use to help you stay on track with your assignments? (ex. Google calendar)

When I first started, I would keep a list of what I needed to do, but now I am used to it and don’t need to make one anymore.

What are your academic and career goals?

I want to be an auto mechanic.

What advice do you have for other new students to SCWS?

If you have problems with any of your work reach out to your teachers so they can help you.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with us? What are some of the things you like to do for fun?

I like to draw.
