“It’s not just what I learned in the West Lafayette schools that prepared me for a career in Silicon
Valley; I also learned how to learn.  That skill has been essential in keeping pace with the global technology and life sciences industries.

I am grateful for the gifted classmates and talented teaching staff at West Side who created a vibrant learning environment, such as the incredible chemistry night labs.  I treasure the lifelong friendships that started in the WL schools and continue today.”

“When I went to Yale, at first it was difficult. But, what I learned at West Lafayette taught me to navigate effectively because of the high bar that was set for me.
You can play basketball and the violin. You can debate and be in student council. You can cheer on your teammates. You can be who you are at West Side. Crossing barriers and boundaries is a way of life here.”
