There are other ways to convey the same meaning, but the above is simple and direct. Hope it helps.

soy buen estudiante

I totally agree with Leomar, that's how we would say it in Spain also.

Un saludo

soy buena alumna

Alumna, in Spanish, is a student.

It does not have the English meaning of someone who has already graduated, but instead, of a female who is a student now.

In this context, "alumna" flows better than "estudiante."
