“No matter what grade you come into EA, you can immediately adapt to the community. If you’re close with one person, you’ll be close with everyone. We’re all friends, we all hang out together, and get along. I can go up to anyone and start talking to them. It feels like a big family.” Reagan Dwyer ‘25
