“Practice doesn’t make perfect; practice makes progress.”
That is the maxim that Amanda Fricker quoted to us when we sat down to talk about her A+ experience. It’s the philosophy that enabled her to raise her ACT score from 25 to 28.
Amanda, who lives in Bucks County, is a student at Council Rock North High School. In addition to belonging to the National English, French, and Social Studies Honor Societies, she plays field hockey, is a member of ski club, and participates in SHARE (Students Helping Area Residents Effectively). As part of SHARE, Amanda contributes to the community. She has tutored at-risk inner city students. During the recent storms, she shoveled walkways for homeowners who couldn’t do it on their own. When she started studying for her standardized tests, she had a lot on her plate!
