    At school, I'm a captain of the Mock Trial team and president of the Junior State of America chapter—basically a club for debating politics. In my spare time, I love reading: I borrowed twelve books from the school library to read over the summer. Right now I'm on the fifth one (Atonement by Ian McEwan), which sadly puts me a little behind the pace to finish. Botany is also a hobby of mine, especially native plants.

My name is Maya and I came to Catlin Gabel freshman year from the French American International School. I spend a lot of my time playing soccer for Catlin Gabel and my club team FC Portland. My favorite things to do outside of school and sports are traveling with my family, eating out with my friends, and spending time with my brother, Cai and my dog, Sadie.

 

As a Catlin Gabel "lifer", I'm always excited to welcome new students to our community! I love playing soccer both for the Catlin Gabel varsity team and for my club ECNL (Elite Clubs National Legue) team. Last year, I participated in the CGSA (Catlin Gabel Student Association) as class co-president. I also enjoy skiing, violin, camping, hiking, volunteering at the Goose Hollow Family Shelter, and hanging out with my friends.

My name is Hansen, and I like to read a lot. I play club soccer as well as for Catlin Gabel, I co-founded the Catlin Gabel Chess Club, and also enjoy climbing mountains with the student led group Post58.

My two main interests are swimming and robotics. In school, my favorite subject is math. In my free time, I like to play video games or hangout with friends.

 

I have a passion for science and am leading a club at Catlin Gabel that works to empower young women scientists from our middle school to pursue their interests in science. Outside of school, I don't play a typical sport, but practice aerial arts and contortion, a Cirque du Soleil type of performing art involving apparatuses such as trapeze, silks, lyra (aerial hoop), and others, for about 25 hours each week.

I am a junior in my sixth year at Catlin. I'm a dedicated member of the Catlin Gabel robotics team, The Flaming Chickens, and an avid programmer and plane-enthusiast. Along with participating in debate, entrepreneurship, community-service, and engineering clubs I spend my time at home working on obtaining my private pilot license and playing games with my friends.

I am a sophomore this year and my favorite thing to do other than touring people is robotics. I spend large amounts of time doing robotics work, often more time-consuming than actual schoolwork. I also am an avid musician and I play three instruments, piano, cello and saxophone.   My favorite classes are science and math, and I participate in InvenTeam, AWSEM, and Marimba club. I play competitive soccer, and I also enjoy tennis, basketball, ping-pong, and skiing. Outside of school and sports, I love to read and play violin.

In school, I have always particularly enjoyed math and science, but continue to be drawn to all disciplines even though my senior year requirements allow for more choice. After school, I spend most of my time training with various Catlin Gabel sports teams. I have participated in soccer and basketball every year, track my freshman year, and plan to try tennis this coming year. Outside of the Catlin Gabel community, I take cello lessons and have done so for the past 14 years.

 

My name is Louis and I am academically STEM oriented. While I do spend a lot of time in class, during my time out of class I participate on the InvenTeam, mock trial team, CGSA, and the varsity tennis team. In my free time, I like to play the piano and spend time with my friends.

My interests and hobbies are visual arts, particularly digital drawing, and piano. I also enjoy/participate in extracurriculars like mock trial and team sports like cross-country and track. I usually spend my free time drawing, reading, and traveling (if I can).
