“Thank you for having us write so much last year! I’m taking an academic writing course this semester and my professor is really impressed by my writing. I believe you were the first teacher to recognize my ability in writing and I really want to thank you.”

“I am taking the Calculus II class at RPI. I took my first quiz and got 100. I have kept all of my calc notes from your class last year and brought them to college with me. They are very helpful and I reference them whenever I can.”

“I want to thank you for teaching Hamlet so well and so in depth. Knowing Hamlet very well is making the transition into college-level English and the course-load a lot easier.”

“Even as an Economics major, it is vital to be able to translate the numerical data into lay terms. In every single one of my economics classes, we are not only tested on the mathematics, but a major part of each test is being able to write what the data shows in words and not just equations. I have met people who struggle to write, which causes them to struggle overall. Thanks to Mrs. Quick, Mrs. Gartenberg and Mrs. Pantos, this is not a problem for me in the slightest.”

"My time at St. E’s was incredibly unique and special for so many reasons. As a young woman, an all-female environment helped me to find my voice and feel confident in professional spaces post-high-school where women are often talked over. As a Black woman, I obtained an education in not only academics, but also in engaging in challenging conversations with women who had opposing views as me. I learned to be comfortable and confident in environments where I am the only Black person in the room. My experience at St. E’s was so essential for my professional development because my education was top tier, and because exposure to an environment that I had not previously been exposed to strengthened me as an individual. A lot of people don’t like to talk about race, but I think that it is important to discuss at a school where there is generally low diversity. That is why it is important to me that prospective Black students know that it is okay to go to St. E’s, and it is a valuable education in more ways than one.”
