What makes Brandon Hall so unique is the people there. The people are all so welcoming and kind. Which was something I wasn't used to when I first got there? The teachers are very involved. . .

1) The campus is on a nature preserve and so beautiful... but also close to Atlanta and all the boarding events that students could want to do near a big city. All athletic facilities are. . .
