Humans of NCDS – Sophia Gaines ’20

Kelly Cloonan

Sophia is a ninth grader this year at NCDS. This is her first year at Newton, and she says she really likes going to school here because of “the people, the environment, and the helpful teachers.” Sophia thinks “the senior class is so nice and welcoming!” She played defense for JV soccer this fall, is playing basketball during the winter season, and thinks she will play softball in the spring. In addition to sports, Sophia enjoys being in the Committee of Games. She says that she is very excited for Congé this year and loves being on the silver team! Before attending Newton, Sophia went to the Mother Caroline Academy in Boston. Over Thanksgiving, she spent time with her family and had a barbecue.
