"When I first started at Minnehaha, I had an amazing experience. I started school not knowing if I would make friends, but I made friends very fast and immediately felt at home. I always had someone to hang out with and I never felt uncomfortable or unwanted. Coming to Minnehaha has been one of the best experiences of my life."
