Inventure Academy has given me…

The team at Inventure has recently been working on our new brochure, and we asked a few of our students & teachers to write some personal thoughts about their experiences at Inventure Academy, so that we could include some of their words in the content.

One of our students from the Class of 2013 recently stopped by our office, just days before she departed for Grinnell College in the USA, and she sat down and wrote this reflection that we’d like to share with you.

Inventure Academy has given me the most intimate and personal high school experience I can imagine.  Growing up I often imagined high school to be a time where I’d be lost in a sea of thousands, fighting to stay on my own two feet, having to figure everything out on my own.  But as soon as I joined Inventure, all those fears were wiped clean.  Inventure never made me feel like just another faceless student.  I have always been known by name; a day wouldn’t go by without getting smiled at in the halls.

More importantly though, I was recognized for the very specific things that made me an individual.  Inventure has always kept an eye on my passions, the things that make me happy.  And because Inventure made me feel like an important member of its community, I was more than glad to share my passions with them.

Whatever it was I wanted to do, Inventure was one step ahead of me – when I took an interest in theatre, a school production was just around the corner; when creative writing caught my eye, word of a poetry competition would emerge.  I’m still not quite sure how they do it, but Inventure has a way of knowing what makes each student tick.  I’ve seen this school grow for the last 6 years, and Inventure’s ability to nurture individuality seems ever-expanding.
