How you have commuted to school throughout the years?

I usually got a ride to school and from school, which is a 15-minute commute. Sometimes I took the train home which is about 20-30 minutes.

What BC High means to you:

The strong sense of community and culture we have cultivated as a school is what I value about BC High. I’ve bought into the Jesuit values and applied them to my education and extra-curriculars. Personally, I’ve felt the support from my teachers, friends, and mentors both on and off the court. The individualized attention BC High gives students encourages us to excel both in the classroom and in sports.

What teachers or guidance counselors say about you:

Ryan utilized his voice and his words to explore various and sundry topics about himself and the world.  He engages language to analyze prose, to speak about justice, and to tell a good story.  He shows what it means to be a well-rounded person.
