The Achievement Center in my high school was my home. I walked into the room and I knew I could take a step back and breathe. Whatever was bothering me was left in the hallway and I didn't have to worry about it for 45 minutes.
The Achievement Center is the only reason that I passed Biology freshman year. I had a wacky teacher that would rather give us coloring pages of cells than actually teaching us about cells. They also helped me through Geometry sophomore year and the hardest English class that I have ever taken in what would be my final year of high school.
The Achievement Center is the sole reason I have been able to thrive as a high schooler in college. I had to take a placement test to show the college and my high school that I am on the same learning level as the average college student. The Achievement Center teachers or moms (as they are known) made sure I took practice placement tests whenever I had no homework to do or tests and quizzes to study for. After becoming comfortable in the Achievement Center, I did not hesitate to run over to the other teachers when I needed help in math or science. The Achievement Center Moms were always there for support and answers to questions about prepositional phrases in the English language or even when I had a personal problem, they were always happy to give advice.
The Achievement Center will always be my home away from home. All the support that the teachers and friends that I made are the force that drove me to be a high school student in college. Without the Achievement Center and Castle Learning, I have no idea what I would be doing currently. Students that were in the Achievement Center at my high school or don't have one at their high school have no idea what amazing opportunities and experiences come from being apart of the Achievement Center Family.
Thank you Mrs. L, Mrs. G, Mrs. S and Mrs. C for all you did for me and continue to do for me even though I am no longer at school everyday.
