Rancho Solano Preparatory School - Review #1
About the Author:
|Home Town, State (Country)||Phoenix, AZ|
|Years Attended Boarding School||4|
|Activities During Boarding School||It is very hard to participate in other activities unless there are other boarders also interested in your activity, otherwise you have to take taxis to get where you need to be.|
1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
Horrible Boarding School. Boarders are hardly integrated into classes of day-students. This inhibits development of their English. They are also treated very badly by the administrators. Students are not treated properly, especially considering the fact that these students are often hundreds of miles away from their family, and need all the support they can get. The emotional stress that these students go through is flabbergasting.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
Most teachers are amazing, but they are all scared of the administration.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
I would have gone to a different school.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
1.) Describe the arts program at your school - what did you like most about it?
Visual Arts and Music are very good, however our art teacher, band teacher, choir teacher, and strings teacher are all leaving next year. This turnover of teachers is something you have to get used to if you come here.
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
Town life is good, but again, enough people have to be interested in an activity, otherwise there is no transportation. The school van will only transport a certain amount of people.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
Social life is good. There are not many people at this school. Boarders are hardly integrated with day students.
