My name is Raymond Kleinschmidt, and I’m in the class of 2018 from Toms River High School East. I am ranked in the top 10 of my class, and have won many awards for academic achievement. I scored the highest in the region on the National German Exam last year, and won the PAD International Study Trip Award, and was able to travel to Germany for three weeks during the summer. During that time, I stayed with a host family, visited many sites around Germany, learned more about German culture, and improved my proficiency in the language. After I graduate, I plan to attend Montclair State University and major in filmmaking. I want to become a movie director, so I plan to work towards accomplishing that goal after college.
