Is it good to have after-school English program teacher write personal recommendation letter?
I'm an eighth grader applying for ninth grade in Exeter and Andover. These schools require a personal recommendation letter for the application. I love to read and write, and I go to an after-school supplementary program for writing. I'm taking a ninth/tenth grade writing class in that program, and the English teacher there really appreciates my writing. I heard that schools frown upon students who take supplementary English and/or math classes outside of regular school classes. Is it a good idea to ask my writing teacher to write the personal recommendation letter? Will it reflect negatively upon me in any way?3 replies
