JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It is Friday so that means it is time for our Student of the Week!

This week we are recognizing Andrea Pernar, an 11th grader at Paxon School for Advanced Studies. She is an outstanding student with a 4.8 GPA! Andrea is in the IB & AP program at Paxon. She said she really loves the sciences and languages and wants to be a chemical engineer.

"With coming to Paxon, I never thought I would actually like science. I knew my brother liked science and that was kind of his thing and I am kind of artsy, but now with all the opportunities offered at Paxon I have found I really enjoy science and I get to pursue that further," tells Andrea.

For her incredible academic excellence, Andrea Pernar is our Student of the Week!
