How do you think attending Stamford Public Schools helped prepare you for future education and career options?

The variety of courses allowed me to explore and find my career niche in college and beyond. At AITE, I was able to explore the world of biomedical science through the four-year Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Biomedical Program, while at the same time taking UConn courses, which inspired me to pursue a second degree in business.
