Student reviews
  • Annika Furman (17)

    The global experience that Fountain Valley School offers is unlike any other. For Annika Furman ’17, however, an international perspective was nothing new. A day student from Colorado Springs, Annika has lived in the United States her entire life. What sets her apart, though, is that much of her family lives in Sweden, and she speaks Swedish fluently. She believes that belonging to two different cultures has shaped her into the person she is today. “When I travel, I love taking in cultural parts of those places and making that part of who I am.” Annika visits her family in Sweden every summer, and she says that gaining global knowledge through travel opens a door to self-discovery. “You become raw and find parts of yourself you didn’t know about before. I’ve lived my entire life here, but I feel like I could go live in Sweden and fit in.” Since transferring to Fountain Valley as a sophomore, Annika says she has continued to become a more complete person. English riding, Honor Council and the Athenaea literary magazine are among the many extracurricular activities that Annika is involved in. She appreciates the open-minded and creative community at FVS, which she says encourages self-expression. “When you box yourself up and try to mold yourself to fit with other people, you’re creating a clone,” she says. “But the individual is so valued at Fountain Valley.” Annika has continued to expand her global appreciation by making friends from around the world. “I went to school with the same kids since kindergarten which is one of the main reasons I switched to Fountain Valley, even though I knew nearly no one,” she says. Annika also traveled to the Dominican Republic for Interim last year. She and her peers spent a week completing community service with the volunteer organization Outreach360 while getting a firsthand look at the Dominican culture. “I had never been in a community like that where everyone has so little but was so happy,” she says. The lessons she learned on the trip taught her to embrace positivity and appreciate the people around her. Annika’s thirst for travel won’t stop with Interim. This school year, she will study in Argentina as part of an exchange program through Round Square, a network of schools that works to create global opportunities for students. Annika’s global perspective has helped her thrive at Fountain Valley and will undoubtedly serve her beyond high school. “The biggest thing I’ve learned through travel is to be flexible and have an open mind. You can plan things out, but the unexpected is wonderful.”

  • Tsering Dingtsa (16)

    Tsering Dingtsa was born in Nepal and lived there for much of his childhood. When he was in fifth grade, though, his parents decided to make a change. Tsering’s mother had sisters living in Colorado, so he and his family moved to Superior, Colo., when he was 10. “My parents decided to move here to give me a better education,” Tsering says. “They wanted a better life for me.” Despite moving across the world from one distinct culture to another, he says he acclimated to American life quickly. “It’s a different culture and environment, but I have gotten used to it,” he says. “People here are more independent and think on their own.” Tsering transferred to Fountain Valley right before his junior year and has adapted to the FVS culture just as seamlessly. Demonstrating his work ethic, he made the Honor Roll after just one semester. He has also been chosen to serve as a residential assistant in a freshman dorm. Tsering considers himself a strong problem solver and is excited for the opportunity to hold a leadership position. His aim is to help younger students make the transition to a new environment like he did just a year ago. He is also actively involved on the soccer and basketball teams, both of which he had only played recreationally before coming to FVS. A defensive midfielder on the soccer field and a point guard on the basketball court, Tsering says he has improved in a number of areas in each sport. “My coaches have helped me develop into a player with more confidence and better skills,” he says. “I would not say I am leader on these teams, but I do help my teammates and try to cheer them up. My coach has helped me improve as an individual player, as well as a team player.” No stranger to global immersion, Tsering has also found it easy to settle into the diverse campus. “I’ve met friends from all over, from China to South America,” he says. “It’s expanded my global knowledge on different topics and issues.” Tsering’s background already gave him the tools needed to adapt to new situations, but the Fountain Valley culture was the perfect place to broaden his horizons. “It’s a friendly community where you can experience different leadership roles and challenge yourself to do different things in a protected environment.” He attributes this welcoming environment to the small size of the school and the close relationships between students and teachers. “The biggest challenge I faced when transferring to FVS was moving away from home into a new environment. I did not know if I was going to fit in, but my schoolmates welcomed me and made me feel like I had always belonged here.” Take it from someone who is an expert at embracing change. Tsering’s advice for new students is, “Don’t hide yourself in your room. Go out, challenge yourself to do something new and don’t be afraid to mess up, because they’re all there to support you.”
