During the month of September, “The Academy” students turned into Samueli Academy students.
While the name change was announced at an event, and meant to be a surprise, some students had an idea that it was coming: “I was already aware of the new school name, so it wasn't really a surprise to me.” said Victor Alvarez, a junior.
Some students didn't understand the reasoning behind the name change: “It's interesting because it takes a while to understand why they chose that name. But at the end, I end up liking the name of the school because I will refer to it in the future.” said Yazmin Brito, a junior.
According to Mr. Saba, Head of School, the name change reflects an important aspect of who we are: “These people are very important and we wouldn't be here without them,” he said about the Samuelis. “The Academy” was just a placeholder; it was never official.
“The word Samueli is all over the place. There is a lot more black, new website, and new social media,” said principal Anthony Saba, “I love the new school name; it sounds cool. It looks cool.”
Because of the new name, our school spirit gear has changed. Each student received a free shirt to show off the name change. Samueli Academy also created agendas with the new logo as well as socks, to be sold soon. The PE clothing has changed as well. Now, everyone will be able to show off their school spirit. Gear up, Firewolves!
