My name is G.M. and I appreciate Telos so much! Telos as well as Telos Academy has helped me in many ways during my stay here. When I first came to Telos, I could not manage my stress at all. Since I’ve been at Telos, I’ve learned how to manage my stress level and deal with stress when it arises. One way that I keep my stress low is by taking advantage of Telos’ triathlon training program which I have made a priority in my life. I exercise daily with the Elite team in the early mornings as a way to manage my stress. I have also gotten the structure I need during my times of struggle whether it is a tutor or just help from teachers when I do not understand something. When I don’t need the structure, I am able to manage myself on my own without structure present. Another way that Telos has helped me is that it has given me the opportunity to do my best without feeling like I’m doing it for other people rather than for myself.
Telos has also been very flexible with what my needs are as a high school with what I want for classes or even with things outside school. Telos has also been very flexible with what my needs are as a high school student, with what I want for classes, or even with things outside of school. I am able to participate in the things that I enjoy even if it means missing school as long as I am able to complete the work beforehand or make it up afterwards depending on what the teacher prefers. One example of this would be how I have been given the opportunity to go to dealer only car auctions for personal enjoyment, as I am a dealer and love cars. I really appreciate the individualized treatment I get and have gotten while at Telos since it has helped me so much in my life. This has given me responsibility and accountability to prove myself and further learn to grow in all areas of my life.
