In an email to HS faculty, Matt wrote, “…There is absolutely no way I could have gotten to this stage without each of the dedicated teachers who stoked my love of learning and pushed me to explore in more depth rather than rest easy with simple explanations. I'm grateful every day for the incredible education I got at GDS, which has set me up for a life of learning in so many ways.”
