The following is a speech given last year by a student at The Community School to a group of potential funders.
My name is Brendon. This is my second year at The Community School. I like TCS because my teachers are nice and funny.
The students are friendly. We have a lot in common.
My classes are fun and we do things in a way that makes sense, like using maps to explore Decatur and learn math.
I can be myself and I don’t have to worry about getting in trouble if I don’t do things the way someone tells me.
People understand me at TCS. That makes me feel good.
