What has been your favorite class at Athenian and why?
My favorite class was Engineering. It's a great class for you to explore what engineering is, how to design, and really bring the things that you think of in your head to life. It’s really cool when you can see something sitting in front of you and you know that you made it.   

What advice would you give to a student thinking about coming to Athenian?
If you’re scared of making new friends, don’t worry, everyone here is really social and looking to make new friends. If you’re scared about classes being too hard, don’t worry because the teachers are really supportive and there’s always time to talk to them about how you're struggling, and they offer a lot of support.
