At Girard, I have been able to truly benefit from the smaller class sizes. I have meaningful opportunities to engage with my teachers, to ask questions, and to ensure I understand the material being taught. Having this extra time and attention has also bettered my relationships with my teachers. I know they care for me and want me to succeed.
