Everyone’s nervous before school starts, but fortunately there’s no need to be too apprehensive. “I heard that it was scary,” Rosie says. And now that she’s here? “I still am scared.” Okay, maybe it does take a little while to get used to things here. Fortunately, Miramonte teachers make the transition easier. “I think they’re really nice,” she said, “but challenging.” Before Miramonte, she attended OIS.

She is also taking French. “My whole family speaks Spanish and so I grew up speaking it. English is my second language,” she says. Enjoying
