School Attitude: Grit, Resilience, Can-Do Spirit

School Attitude

Jazzy Lynch

4 year Senior

“I’m changing at Steamboat Mountain School. I’m growing to be more independent and more confident.  As a boarding student, I knew I would have to start doing things on my own. 

Being out in the wilderness is a good learning experience. We rotate different jobs like cooking or water duty or group leader. Everybody has to help out. When skiing, you have to learn to persevere and push through challenges. On Desert week and camping trips you’re doing things you don’t usually do, so you have to push yourself. That definitely carries over to schoolwork. If I’m studying for a test, I have to push myself there also.”
