Our Senior Spotlight campaign honors Bennett Day School’s first graduating class – a group of earnest and courageous students who took a chance on a high school that didn’t even exist yet.
Throughout the last four years, these students have proven time and time again that young people are innately capable, curious, and competent, especially when they feel seen and heard at school.
Stay tuned between now and the end of the school year as we give each senior an opportunity to share memories, advice, and future plans!
Senior Spotlight: Jasmin
Why did you choose/decide to go to Bennett Day School?
I chose Bennett because I wanted more freedom to pursue my own interests.
What are your plans after you graduate?
I will be studying architecture at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York. I will continue to pursue art and design, and will hopefully learn how to swim by the lake!
(Jasmin is too humble to mention that she is also a Posse Scholar. Learn more about this prestigious scholarship/youth leadership development program.)
What advice would you give rising seniors?
It's not that serious — make and learn from your mistakes. Enjoy your time at Bennett because it will be over before you know it.
What’s your favorite project-based learning (PBL) memory?
The Justice PBL during my Junior year was my favorite because I got to organize an art exhibition. The stressful sketching sessions during visitor presentations and the long nights painting the cardboard cutouts were really memorable. I hope to do something similar in the future.
What are you excited for after Bennett?
As much as I love our small and comfy classrooms, I am looking forward to learning on a bigger campus in college.
