Four Years in the Vale: A High School Experience

Four Years in the Vale: A High School Experience

Hello everyone! As my time in Maryvale is coming to an end, I want to reflect on my experience in a creative and fun way by writing a poem. Enjoy!


Four Years in the Vale: A High School Experience 

The castle, the red doors

The community, and more

My experience in Maryvale is something I am eternally grateful for

The lessons I’ve learned, the friendships I made

Something so dear to my heart that I will never trade


Spirit week, retreats

Community homeroom and gym meet

Marching to victory for the banner that we compete

Big sister, little sister, pins and rings

Taking each other under our wings


Blazers and skirts

Polos and sweatshirts

In these uniforms, we hold memories that never desert 

In every teaching we took heed

To learn, lead, and indeed succeed


Caps, diplomas, and gowns

Echoes of cheers and sounds

Graduation day is filled with ups and no downs

As they say our names, we walk across the stage

With every step we take, we turn a new page


Our high school chapter is now closing

Throughout the Vale, we’ve been growing

In our hearts, a light is always glowing

We will encounter obstacles on our way

But with the sisterhood in us, we will be okay



I am so grateful that I chose to attend Maryvale Preparatory School. I have learned so many lessons that will help me not only in school but in life. I have formed friendships and I will always be grateful for the wonderful support system of the sisterhood. As I enter a new chapter, I will continue to take everything I have learned and apply it to my life.
