The Ultimate Student

The world belongs to us… So gaze upon this triumphant piercing sight – the builders of pyramids and vital contributors to the magnificent, glorious wonders of America’s present and future.

We are the ultimate students… who attribute our extremely high self-esteem and our tough-as nails disposition to our philosophical belief “that no one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

We are the epitome of the expression “Excellence breeds excellence.”

We are tried, true and tested under fire in a tough, competitive environment. We reach for the unreached. WE take care of business. We are resilient, heroically bold, extremely candid, swift of mind, proud, yet humble.

We are the ultimate students who renew our quest for excellence every day. We seize the moment, we o not look back, we make big plans, we aim high. We always play to win.

We are the ultimate students…to whom much is given much is expected.

We do not rest on our laurels, nor do we place any limits on our intellectual or spiritual achievement. We never settle for “just getting by, making excuses, taking short cuts, cutting corners, beating the system, or goofing-off.”

We are not eager to follow others; we are not impressed with glitter and gleam, nor are we swayed by peer pressure.

We elect instead to soar like the eagle by always striving to achieve the magic and honor of leadership before we settle for the lesser easier role of following others.

We are the ultimate students… We measure our success not by what we are, but by what we could be; not by what we have done, but by what we can do.

We possess extreme confidence, character and self-abnegation.

We are not timid, intimidated or small minded.

Tomorrow belongs to us, and yesterday’s accomplishments will pale in comparison without academic achievements… We are adventurous, creative, daring and willing to accomplish what others say cannot be done.

We are the ultimate students… Who are respected for our inquiring, tameless, universal minds. We do not rest until our thoughts turn to actions.

We think beyond the traditional by reaching deeper into the unknown, by asking “What If”, “What About“, and “What Else”?

We are the ultimate students. We harness our God-given talents. As a result, we are expected to succeed in life and encouraged to share our success with those who are less fortunate.

We are the ultimate students…When we try, we do not cheat. When we lose, we do not cry. And, when we compete, we take no prisoners—none.

The world belongs to us…The future belongs to us…And today begins with us…The Ultimate Students.
