Crossing through the high-school quad, you might recognize a familiar face back on campus. Junior Alexa Griggs has returned.

After eighth grade, Griggs left to attend Christian Brothers High School.

But Griggs returned on Nov. 1.

“I came back because I really like the environment, and the education is wonderful,” Griggs said.

“I think the environment at CB isn’t as friendly and the kids aren’t as welcoming as the Country Day kids. It’s hard to be yourself at CB.”

Griggs’s father, Chris, who also graduated from eighth grade here in 1983, encouraged Alexa to return.

When her father was a student, he was taught by teachers Sue Nellis, Daniel Neukom and Patricia Fels, all of whom taught in the middle school then.
