Strong academics and self-esteem

Posted by Rebecca Moore - 19 October, 2014

WATN_Smitha_Persaud_1"My family moved to Huntsville and I started Randolph in the second grade. I was so afraid that the teachers would not know what I had already learned and what I didn't know. Clearly this was never an issue.

"I most value how I became part of the Randolph family. School was a very comfortable, loving environment where everyone knew each other and all of the teachers took the time to get to know me. It was self-esteem building.

"I chose Randolph for my kids because I wanted them to have the same nurturing, self-esteem building experience I had. I also wanted them to be at a school that has strong academics. I wanted them to enter the world at 18 feeling confident and full of self-worth, which I think Randolph helped to give me.
