Victoria Portnow '10
Dartmouth College Class of 2014
"Although I knew that Charles Wright had prepared me well for college, at first I underestimated exactly how well it did. After arriving at Dartmouth and taking placement tests in writing, math, Spanish and French, I discovered that my high school education gave me a head start on my college career by allowing me to start out taking higher-level classes. I also found that the reading skills and studying habits I developed at Charles Wright helped me to manage my time well; I get plenty of sleep every night, whereas many of my friends and classmates stay up studying late into the night. After completing my first quarter and seeing my success, I feel confident in my abilities as a college student, and I have to thank all of the teachers I had while at Charles Wright. I learned something unique in each and every class I took in the Upper School that has immensely helped me in my college career so far."
