I''ve attended Calverton since second grade, and let me tell you, every time I get a chance to talk to someone about how great it is, I take it, enthusiastically. I tell everyone that''ll listen how helpful and attentive my teachers are, I tell them what the atmosphere is like, I tell them how I feel like it's my home away from home. It's not just a place to learn and hang with friends, it's a place I go to relax, to do fun things, to have new experiences. So much of my life is based in Calverton, and that is a gift I will never fail to be thankful for. -A junior, class of 2014
