Pablo Lozano attended North Star Academy from 2003-2009 and he says he remembers every single teacher he had. From his 3rd grade teachers, Ms. Snyder and Ms.Lozano, all the way up through 8th grade when he had Mr. Duncan, Ms. Davenport, Ms.Baltay and Ms. Keller. He says he learned a lot here and it helped him to develop intellectually but the most important thing he learned was the value of maintaining good relationships.
“Never forget that some of the relationships and memories you make at North Star will last a lifetime,” he said. He added that he also appreciated the experiential academic opportunities such as the gold rush field trip, outdoor education, the week in Yosemite, the overnight at the zoo and the 8th grade trip to Washington DC.
Pablo spent a lot of time hanging around North Star because his mother, Vira Lozano was a 3rd grade teacher here.
“I was on campus before school started, long after school ended, on weekends and even over school breaks,” he said, and added, “NSA holds an exceptional place in my heart because I knew many of the teachers before I attended, and grew stronger relationships with them as I completed their classes and enrichment courses.”
After high school he enlisted in the army and graduated from Stanford University while serving in the reserves. He took an oath to be a commissioned officer in 2018. After living in Georgia, Washington D.C. and New York City, he moved to Cambridge Massachusetts and is studying law at Harvard University. All the while continuing to serve in the U.S. Army.
