1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
We all are like a family and it makes our school unique, different from others. We are an international school, and we are here away from our families but coming to this school one can find a new family. Our teachers and guidance counsellors are very inclusive in student's life. It's really a pleasure for me to study in this school.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
After coming to EF Academy I changed a lot I became very confident person who knows what to do in future. I am not afraid to express my own opinion.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
Guys, be sure that this is great place where you do excellent learning, make some great friends and be loved and careful.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
For me it was very difficult at the beginning, because I missed my family so much! But I found a new family and my guidance counsellor, Rachel Ripley, helped and supported me a lot. She is the one I know I can always go to and tell everything.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
I would recommend everyone to visit art department in our school. Where there always are works of our students. If you are a visitor in our school talk to our ambassadors to hear their opinion and experience.
1.) Describe the academics at your school - what did you like most about it?
The most important part of our school is our teachers. They are very attentive and ready to explain everything and help at any time. During lessons our teachers always use YouTube videos and PowerPoint presentations. We can always feel that they really enjoy what they doing.
1.) Describe the arts program at your school - what did you like most about it?
We have drama and different music clubs. Drama club shows different performances for all students and staff members. Also we have a talent show where all students can demonstrate their talents and creativeness. We have piano club, guitar club, singing club and music band as well.
1.) Describe the extracurriculars offered at your school - what did you like most about it?
We have student council which consists of 4 committees: Student outreach, Social, Cultural and boarding. Also some of our students are part of Global EF Academy ambassador program.

I really like Torquay! It's a nice quite place and of course it's the reason why it's easy to concentrate on studying here.

I really like that we have a lot of charity events at our school, I am glad that we are given opportunity to change somebody's life in the positive way.
