Meet our Students

Saagar Sanghavi, Cupertino High School, Class of 2018

Saagar is attending UC Berkeley, majoring in Computer Science

“The culture in our community is remarkable – students are always willing to go out of their way to support one another. High school is a place where you make dozens of crucial choices – who to hang out with, what clubs to join, what classes to take and what sports to try out for. While you may find yourself wandering, use these opportunities to develop your sense of self-identity and define who you want to be. Forming relationships with many of my teachers outside of class and connecting with them on a personal level helped me grow not only as a learner, but as an individual finding his place in the world.”

Isabella Rosado, Homestead High School, Class of 2018

Isabella is attending Yale University, majoring in Environmental Studies and minoring in Spanish

“Take advantage of all that Homestead has to offer. There are so many activities that you won’t have the chance to try again. The diversity of Homestead’s campus, from the students to the clubs, made my high school years special. I was able to explore new activities, learn from a supportive teaching staff and connect with my peers. By embracing the different opportunities here at Homestead, you will be able to make the most of your high school years."

Frank Wang, Fremont High School, Class of 2018

Frank is attending UC Berkeley, double majoring in Engineering Math and Statistics & Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

“At Fremont, there are so many people to meet, so many experiences to be enjoyed and so many memories to be created; these opportunities are right at your fingertips. My time at Fremont has been amazing, largely due to all the people I have been able to form connections with, including the friends, teachers, coaches and administrators who have helped me become a better student, athlete and person. The most important piece of advice I have is to be “FHS” – Focused, Hardworking and Self Confident. Some of my best memories from high school are the times when I applied this and pushed myself beyond my perceived limits to achieve a goal.”

Anushka Srivastava, Lynbrook High School, Class of 2018

Anushka is attending the World Bachelor in Business program at the University of Southern California, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and University Commercial Luigi Bocconi, Milan

“Lynbrook has tremendous opportunities, one just needs to keep their eyes open. What made my high school years really special was the fact that I stepped out of my bubble and made an effort to put myself out there, since I had recently moved to the United States. Thinking beyond myself and building genuine relationships with others definitely made things easier for me. Lynbrook can often be a competitive environment, but maintaining a positive attitude makes a huge difference. I would advise students to keep an open mind and move forward by taking others along with them. Share what you know and learn what you don’t from others.”

Jason Shen, Monta Vista High School, Class of 2018

Jason is attending Harvard University, majoring in Human Developmental and Regenerative Biology

“The nourishing environment at MontaVista helped maximize my academic learning, while allowing me to grow personally through clubs, sports and the relationships I built. My high school years were made special by amazingly supportive adults and hilariously entertaining friends. Monta Vista certainly has a reputation for being highly competitive. To most freshman, myself included, this reputation implied that MontaVista is stress inducing. Regardless of the validity of that preconceived notion, don’t let it dictate the way you experience MV. The best way to go through high school is to go through it your own way – with your own classes, sports and clubs – and develop your own feelings towards it. More likely that not, you’ll learn to love Monta Vista.”
