My Matignon

I am honored to share just a little bit about my experience at Matignon High School. From my very first day at Matignon, I can remember how Mr. DiSarcina impressed upon us the importance of our motto, “Expect Excellence,” whether we are on the sports field, the stage in the auditorium or in the classroom. It is not enough to do well academically; we are encouraged to develop our faith and friendships through sports, clubs, and activities. Matignon is a place where students of all grades are able to interact and become friends. When asked, I proudly tell people that I go to Matignon High School.

I have spent many years hanging around the halls of Matignon High School. My older sister, Christina, who graduated in 2013, is now a senior at Emmanuel College, studying theater and elementary education. My older brother, Joe, graduated in 2015 and is now a sophomore at Bentley University studying business.

In addition to my studies, I have been a member of student council and the National Honor Society, and a lector at our monthly masses through campus ministry. I have played basketball and softball and I am involved in the drama and yoga clubs. As you can see, I am very busy around Matignon! And like many of my classmates, I don't think I have ever left when the bell rings at 2:13 p.m. and I don't want to either. One of my favorite parts of Matignon High School is the family that has developed in the hallways. I believe that this is most evident after school when students choose to stay and go to sports or even to just do their homework in the library together. It is clear we want to support one another and that we are as important to each other as our families at home.

In addition to our studies and after school activities, Matignon High School has stressed upon us the importance of service in the community. I volunteer as a religious education assistant teacher and I am involved in many other service opportunities through the youth group that I helped to start at my parish.

The skills, friendships and opportunities afforded to me by Matignon High School will have a lifelong impact on me. We are encouraged to develop our strengths, while also discovering areas that we may have not been exposed to before. I have challenged myself over the years through AP courses in Biology, United States History, Calculus, Spanish and Physics. Matignon has developed my faith through daily prayer, monthly mass, class retreats, and Christian Service. Matignon is a school that takes learning far beyond the classroom. Over the years, my classmates and I enjoyed a visit from executives at PWC, who spoke to us about personal branding and how to be successful in the future.  We performed biology labs at local institutions such as Biogen, Inc. and MIT to supplement our classroom learning and get hands-on experience in a state of the art lab.  One of my English teachers hosted a primary source speaker on the holocaust and we visited the New England Holocaust Memorial in Boston as a capstone to our studies on this unit.

I was so happy to be asked to share my experience because I love to tell people about how much I love Matignon High School. My years at Matignon have flown by and I know that wherever I end up in the future, Matignon will always be a part of my life.
