I’m not afraid to speak up when I think things should change. In other schools, they’ll never change the rules — because they’ve always been the rules, and that’s the way it is. If you don’t like it, tough luck.

I love this school because it embraces your voice. They listen.

If you don’t like something, talk about it. It might change. I love that my school lets kids help build the culture we want by speaking our mind.

Many people today don’t want you to speak up because it might not be what they want to hear. That’s not true here. I can say what’s on my mind. Other students and teachers will listen.
