Menlo Students is a community where I am surrounded by people my age who share my faith. Most of my friends at school aren't believers, and it gets lonely not having anyone around who shares that core part of my identity, but spending time at Menlo Students helps to relieve that loneliness. - Aaron, Senior from Saratoga


Menlo Students has given me a trusting group of friends that has supported me throughout the ups and downs of previous years. It means so much to me to be part of such a supportive group and to have a sense of belonging as well as spread that to others at Students.- Cooper, Sophomore from San Mateo
