David Cohen (Class of 1991)

"At Barnstable, I found a school filled with people who cared....from jocks to actors, from vampires to Van Gogh's, from rockers to ravers, from ADD to OCD....we co-existed and expanded our minds and lives without feeling different or wrong.  Barnstable, a place that understood our individual ways of learning, made us all feel comfortable with who we were and we were all able to learn."
