My Matignon

The transition from eighth to ninth grade is always a bit nerve-wracking yet somehow, with that fear comes a special pride. Not only because you completed middle school, but it is a reminder that you are about to partake in four of the most important years of your life.   

I previously attended the John F. Kennedy School, a K-8 public school in Somerville. I made many friendships, some of which lasted all nine years I was there. For most of the time I attended the Kennedy School, I was under the assumption I was going to go to Somerville High School, so the idea of attending a Catholic school was completely foreign to me.

All throughout the admissions process, I only looked for two things in a school, a community that I felt welcome in, and a commitment to push me, not only to be a better student but become the best person I can be. And I could see these two things as soon as I walked in the door during the first open house at Matignon.

Knowing that I will be in an exceptional school community and in a school that puts character and academics above all else made me realize that Matignon was where I was meant to be.

Because of the overwhelming support and resources Matignon provides, I now am able to take all honors classes, am a member of the Mock Trial team, a member of the Academic Decathlon team, write for the Matignon Mirror, and was elected Vice-President of the Class of 2022.
