I came into Lutheran West knowing no one. My first day was like any other freshman’s first day. Even though I did indeed know no one, I left that first day thinking to myself, “I am going to like it here.” Now a college sophomore, I can truly say to myself that I did indeed “like it here”.  In fact, I more than liked it, I loved it. There were so many opportunities to get involved.

I was never a drama type person at all. Plays were for those acting people. Mr. Maechner changed that. After having him in English class and then in Drama Broadcasting, he noticed that I was a very enthusiastic individual, to say the least. He later told me that after reading in his English class, he knew he had to get me to try out. He actively pursued me and practically begged me to try out for a play. And I did. A year later I was Romeo in Lutheran West’s production of Romeo and Juliet. I honestly can say that Mr. Maechner made that happen for me. He saw the potential in me and brought it out, something that Lutheran West does quite frequently.

A.P. Biology at first intimidated me. A college text book, a former nurse as a teacher, and stories from previous  students all took a part in that intimidation factor. That class turned out to be my favorite class of my high school career. A.P. Biology and A.P. Calculus prepared me so well for college, so much so that the material I was studying in my college classes was identical to the material covered in my high school classes! It put me ahead of the game to start out with. Lutheran West could not have done a better job preparing me for college. The courses were outstanding.

Lutheran West has so many positive characteristics: from the extra-curriculars, to the faculty and staff, to the chapels, to the friends that are made there. Lutheran West is truly a high school that strives to be the best it can be.

Both through academics and sports, my experience at Lutheran West has indeed impacted my life positively and immensely.
