Reflections and Advice:
1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
The Phelps School is a school that specializes in providing an individual education to each student. The classes were very small and the staff was more than willing to help me in every aspect of my life. I had teachers who inspired me and encouraged me to achieve at the highest level. I had many choices of classes and extra-curricular activities available.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
I went to the Phelps School partly because I was failing in the public school environment. Phelps gave me the opportunity to thrive. They revealed through their testing that I was able to perform at a level above my current grade. They accelerated my learning and did what it took to meet my needs.
Phelps also broadened my horizons because I was able to meet good friends in foreign countries. I had the opportunity to travel to Taiwan with a classmate and now have a career working in Asia.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
I would recommend that students going to boarding school take the opportunity to make a fresh start, make good friends, and plan for a limitless future!
4.) What did you like most about your school?
Individual attention! They do what it takes to meet individual students' needs. They help students reach their goals.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
Founder's Hall is one of the most comfortable (though it's only for older students). The campus is expansive and beautiful. If you like horses this may be the place for you.
