What is it like to be a Tower student? Hear from our students!

1st Grade

This first-grader discusses student life at Tower, including what he looks forward to each day, and his experience with challenging school work. Timmy also announces his plans for the future.

Something that is really hard is math—but I really like math. It's my favorite thing to do in school.

7th Grade

This seventh-grader shares her experience joining Tower in middle school, opens up about courage and shares a few things that she's looking forward to in her 8th grade year at Tower. 

Recitation Day will take a lot of courage because we will be speaking in front of the whole school which will be a little nerve racking, but I'm very excited.

8th Grade

This student describes himself as ambitious; he makes the most of the opportunities that Tower affords him to excel as a leader, to pursue his passion—and to use those skills to forge a path to his career.

My favorite afterschool activity at Tower was playing soccer. I loved this because I felt like a leader and I helped people when they needed it.

“We have benefited so much over a short period of time from Tower.  [Our son] is excelling, and is just so happy. Coming out of the teacher conferences, I am just so thankful and want to celebrate/endorse Tower’s excellent teachers, programs, and vision in any way we can.”
