Sierra Elderage, '18

Hear from one of our students, Sierra, as she shares about her time at Benjamin Franklin Charter School. It was great to talk with her about her experience!

Q: Tell us a little bit about what you're involved in at school. 

Sierra: "I play the flute, and I've been in band for about 8 years now. I've done sports like soccer and volleyball. I've also joined clubs like NHS. I've had the opportunity to participate in quite a few things." 

Q: What do you think makes Benjamin Franklin Charter School unique?

Sierra: "I think Benjamin Franklin is unique because we teach morals, and ethics, and virtues, and how to be a good person. We're not just learning facts and what's going to get you a good job - we're learning how to progress in our lives to become better people." 

Q: What have been some of the highlights from your time here? 

Sierra: "Ever since elementary, they've [teachers] always kind of pushed us - and I love it. You have Picture of Sierra laughing in class with fellow studentsgood teachers who actually teach you and great classmates. We've [classmates] all known each other for so long - since kindergarten! And so there is no real 'popular' or 'unpopular' groups - it's really quite a close environment."

Q: Why are you proud to be a part of BFCS? 

Sierra: ""I'm proud to be a part of Benjamin Franklin because we are constantly learning how to be good people, not just students."
