“Being a student at AGS has helped me learn more about myself, and I have grown to be a really confident person, especially in my music. AGS offers a unique educational environment that I couldn’t get anywhere else. Everything is tailored to me. I get so much individual attention from teachers who know my goals and feel like I am more than just a number. Not only do I learn better in every subject this way, but I also learn more about real-world issues through programs like EDLS.“

A founding leader of Category 5, AGS’s a cappella group, Rachel is an avid thespian, musician, and singer involved in many of the school’s productions and talent showcases. An accomplished pianist and singer/songwriter, she also plays guitar. Rachel’s voice and songwriting style are a blend of soulful pop and jazz.
