Rosenbrock Academy Orientation

I accepted the invitation to visit Rosenbrock for an orientation, meeting teachers, students, and looking around the campus. I went this Friday (5/28/10) and it actually went very well! I was shown around by Emma Adani, eighth grade student council president, Katie Kennedy, president of the Nation Junior Honor Society Rosenbrock Chapter, and Elle Sanders, president of Student Activities committee. The assistant principal, Miss Finley, also accompanied us on the tour.

Emma Adani

Emma: president of Rosenbrock's student council, and possibly the United States some day. She truly is the 'go-to' kind of girl, very loyal and reliable. From spending the day with her, I could tell she's very organized and on top of things all of the time. Emma is very helpful and gave me a lot of tips if I ended up coming to Rosenbrock. She loves to help out where ever she can and is very involved in the school and its many organizations and activities.

Katherine "Katie" Kennedy

Katie: president of NJHS and one of the most genuinely nice people I have ever met. She has a very happy demeanor and is extremely friendly. Katie talks a lot and is great at getting people into conversation. Even though we were basically complete strangers, she made me feel like I was her best friend.

Hazelle "Elle" Sanders

Elle: president of the Student Activities committee, and though not as personable and charismatic as Katie, she really knows how to handle things well. Elle's in charge of everything from sports teams, to the school paper, to the various clubs. She is bluntly honest and tells it like it is. Elle isn't quite mean, but doesn't sugar-coat anything. The truth hurts, I supposed, and she warned me of a few things at Rosenbrock.

Miss Jane Finley

Miss Finley: assistant principal at Rosenbrock and one of those teachers that are strict, yet nice. She doesn't tolerate nonsense, but is very nice if you stay on her good side. She taught English for twenty years before coming to her current position. She cares a lot about her students and wants the best for them.

Avery-Marie "Avery" Voisin

Avery: also known as me, the potential, brainy, new girl. After seeing Rosenbrock, I'm really not sure what to think. Mondale's still great... but things here aren't half bad, either.

Still thinking,


  1. Hmmm...this is a tough decision! Rosenbrock looks nice, but you still want to be where you're familiar.

    You'll be successful no matter what you do!

  2. Oh, wow! Rosenbrock sounds great, but Mondale sounds like your home.

    Hmm.... this is tough. I wish you all the best, Avery! :)

    -Jess :)

  3. Cool! Rosenbrock and Mondale are 4 times both good school. Hard choice-but good luck!

  4. Sounds like a tough decision. But either way, if you don't like Rosenbrock, you can just drop the program and return to Mondale, I think? The arts school that I'm going to go to next year; one girl dropped out (you could call that) and went to her last school, I believe. Speaking of orientations; mine is tomorrow... ah well. Rosenbrock does sound like a good school.

  5. Everyone seems overall very nice there! I guess it is a tough decision. All I can say is to go with your heart. Whatever it tells you to do is the right choice. :)


  6. Wow, that school looks very nice (and fancy, I might add).

    Don't worry, I know you'll make the right decision!
