Life After Changing Schools

Student Anna Meyer explains what life is like after transferring to St. Dominic High School
submitted by Anna Meyer
Anna Meyer has been at St. Dominic High School since second semester of sophomore year.

Anna Meyer is a sophomore at St. Dominic High School. She used to go to Liberty and the Wentzville School District. At the end of the first semester, she transferred over to St. Dominic.

“I was stressing myself out a lot so I quit to take a break and get my mental health a little better,” Meyer said. “I did volleyball for a little bit but I didn’t love it like I did gymnastics. I also started doing some tumbling classes. But since coming down to St. Dominic I’ve really gotten out of my comfort zone and I decided to try out for cheer. I made the team so now I’m in cheer. I am so excited for the season to start and my team is amazing and all the girls are so nice.”

After high school, Meyer wants to go to Maryville for the nursing program.

“I haven’t decided exactly what I want to do but I know I want to do something in the medical field. I have about five different options that I’ve been looking into for a while but I’m not sure which one I want to do yet,” Meyer said. “I’m also looking into MoBap (Missouri Baptist) because I’ve heard that’s a good school too.”

Meyer explains that there are a lot of differences between St. Dominic and Liberty.

“There’s a lot of differences. I would say some of the main ones are the environment,” Meyer said. “At Liberty, it was just just kinda chaotic, and at St. Dominic, it’s very organized and faith-based. There are so many more opportunities at St. Dominic too. At Liberty, I feel like you’re just a number. When you’re in a class, a teacher might know your name and that’s kinda just it. But, at St. Dominic, you get to build a good relationship with your teachers.”

Moving from one school to the next would definitely be a huge change in your life, for the better or even for the worse. For Meyer, it’s a great opportunity to branch out to new things you wouldn’t want to do before. She also explains that St. Dominic is great at getting kids prepared for college.

“This school is also a college preparatory school and I love that because we are getting prepared for college,” Meyer said. “Another difference is they really help you pick what college to go to, we went on a couple of college visits this year which I really like. The main reason why I left is because I went to a private school before and I really missed it. I mainly missed the faith-based community. Public school just isn’t for me. I don’t really care for public schools. There are so many people at public schools, too many and you’re kinda just a number and I feel like the teachers and faculty care about you much more at private schools. Public school just really wasn’t for me so I switched and now I love this school and switching was the best decision of my life. I do miss my friends at Liberty but it’s okay because we still keep in touch.

Transferring from one school to another is a good challenge. It’s a big chance for you to change and meet so many more new people and it’s an overall achievement to accomplish. Anna Meyer is happy with her decision to transfer to St. Dominic.
