1. Read the following descriptions of Midtown High School and John Jay High school; two schools in which Olivia, who moved during the summer and is entering her junior year, is consid-ering enrolling. Then, in the space provided, write an argument for the choice you think Olivia should make. The following considerations should guide your thinking;
(1) Olivia wants a curriculum that will prepare her for college.
(2) Olivia wants to participate in extracurricular activity, particularly gymnastics.
(3) Olivia is worried that she will not make friends quickly.
Midtown High School has a student body of 10,000, and average class size is 35 to 37. Be- cause it is a large school, Midtown offers a wide variety of courses, including vocational training and advanced courses in chemistry, physics and math. Each year students from Midtown capture several of the state’s top academic awards. Midtown offers a wide range of extracurricular activi- ties, and its gymnastics team placed third in state competition last year.
John Jay High School has a student body of 2,000, and average class size is 15 to 17. The
school was established to offer academically challenging courses for talented students. In the se- nior year, a student is allowed to register for courses at the community coliege across the street from John Jay.

John Jay are designed for talented students, so they must be difficult. Additionally, in her year, Olivia can learn firsthand what college is like.
Olivia will have the opportunity to make friends at John Jay because the size of the s’
body is not overwhelmingly large. Moreover, the fact that the average class size is only fift seventeen students suggests that classes will not be very formal.
Finally, John Jay has a relatively new gymnastics team, so Olivia should be able to f
pate in many events. Further, she will be able to learn by watching college gymnasts pra(
Although Midt’own does offer some advantages, Olivia would be better able to achie
goals at John Jay.
