You are not “just a number”!

I have heard high school students who are concerned about test results proclaim: “I am more than just a number!"

My response is, “Of course you are!"

You are a scholar, and you have unique interests, gifts, and contributions to make to the world. You may be an artist, an athlete, a debater, a scientist. Perhaps you have a passion for writing, for math, for geography, for design, for history, or for languages. Whatever your passions, I imagine you have dreams of an exciting and challenging career in which you can thrive.
