Holly (Larson) Abramson, ‘08, organizes and leads both the Extended Day and Summer Programs at Minnehaha. She came to Minnehaha for high school, calling the experience “transformational ”. Holly was struck by the differences between her public school experience and what she found at Minnehaha. She was amazed at how much freedom the students had, how much teachers trusted them to make smart choices, and she was “blown away” by all of the enriching opportunities at MA—it was small enough that students could get involved in all kinds of things such as yearbook, choir, and sports—all at the same time, without the level of competition found at a public school. “MA provided so many opportunities to discover what you were passionate about,” she says.
