When I visited TJ, one of the big draws was the class experience. Unlike what I had both experienced in grade school and seen at other schools, class seemed fun without being fluff. Students were enjoying learning about things that most kids wouldn't touch with a yardstick. If the teachers could make the rock cycle as interesting as a full-blown lab experiment, why shouldn't I go? Three years later, I can say for sure I was right. Learning Greek paradigms and diving into cellular respiration are just as amazing as anything else, and the marvelous community experiences a small school can do are just gravy. I can say for sure that I would be bored to death if I never found a community with quite the excitement of learning and zest for life that TJ has offered to me for the past few years, and I hope many others can receive the gift.
