Class of 2017

“My name is Tai Huang (Pete), I’m originally from Shanghai, China. I’m going to be graduating in the year of 2017, and I was admitted to several universities: UC Davis, UC Santa Cruz, UC Irvine, UC Santa Barbara, and University of Washington. I was here for 3 years beginning sophomore year, and I’ve taken a total number of 3 AP classes: AP Calculus AB, AP Statistics, and AP Physics. My favorite activity at school is the Chinese New Year celebration. I can still clearly remember that the first year we were here, Mr. Anson, the principal, came in to the class and told us that he wanted us to feel like we are home. He wants us to know that they care about us, so they want to do something for us for Chinese New Year. Therefore that turned out to be a tradition to celebrate Chinese New Year for international students every year. All the faculty in our school treat us really kind, they understand that we are far from home, and it’s the first time for most of the international students, and that we are this far away from our home and families, thus they help us a lot with the school work and always give us a lot of compliments. At last, after three years of high school life at Paraclete, I really appreciate every teacher and student who helped us through these 3 years and I’m really proud to be a Paraclete alumni.”
