|Coming to Simon's Rock was the best decision I've ever made, and the most influential on the person I have become. The atmosphere is stimulating and encouraging of debate, criticism, intellectual thought, and serious discussions. We are told from day one that our ideas are valid and that questioning authority is not only okay but important. This is not the place, however, for someone just wanting to get away from home or don't like the restrictive rules of high school, but a place to go if you want to challenge yourself, to meet other people like you who want to share ideas, to grow intellectually and emotionally, and to learn more in one year that you probably would in all four years of high school. I am a student in the Upper College, starting my B.A. thesis soon, and Simon's Rock has encouraged my intellectual growth to the point that I am positively thrilled about this intensive project. I can't imagine anything that will prepare me more for graduate study in history than the serious research projects and intensive reading loads that I have been and will be assigned by the brilliant and dedicated faculty.|
