Sakib Dadi"Sakib is what we call a 'lifer' here at Fairmont Schools; he has been a student from preschool through his senior year. While Fairmont is a school full of fantastic kids, no single student in recent memory has had such a positive impact upon our institution," said Jonathan Dunn, Fairmont Prep College Counselor. Sakib Dadi began his educational career at the Anaheim Hills campus in the preschool program. At Anaheim Hills, he developed his passion for soccer playing on Mr. Drake's team, and was a key member of the Academic Pentathlon team. For Sakib, the most memorable and unique quality of the Anaheim Hills campus was, "the sense of community that all of the students had with each other and our teachers."
Sakib went on to attend Fairmont Preparatory Academy and graduated Salutatorian in 2011 with numerous college acceptances including: Boston University, UC Berkeley, Duke University, University of Pennsylvania, George Washington University and USC. Fairmont Prep counselor, Jonathan Dunn further remarked, "Sakib is truly the Renaissance person of [the 2011] senior class. He does everything, and does it better than anyone else. Sakib is a true scholar, always exploring deeper into every subject he studies." Now in his freshman year at the University of Pennsylvania, Dadi is continuing to hone his reputation as a "Renaissance person" by complementing his academics with extracurricular activities. He is currently consulting for a startup company, organizing a competition for business ideas, and tutoring children in the West Philadelphia community. He hopes someday to start his own business.
Sakib said he definitely attributes his success in high school and college to his educational foundation at Anaheim Hills. "I feel like coming out of Fairmont, I got a great education in every subject area. I was prepared for the challenges of high school and college because of the hard work that I put in during my years at the Anaheim Hills campus. The teachers were really supportive in making sure that you actually understood what you were learning and guaranteed that you received a quality education."
