Academics:

1.) Describe the academics at your school - what did you like most about it?

Dorm life is very fun. School matches you up with person that are mostly similar to you. They do surveys before the school year starts, so I think there won't be any problems with dorm problems

Dining hall is awesome. Many foods represent countries, and it is all organic. I liked that it was all organic.

Social and Town Life:

New Hampton is a very small town. We get to see a lot of areas of the town and we go to outside a lot on Saturday extended block. Extended block usually is fun class that we do outside of classrooms.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
It is really easy to make friends in this school because there are a lot of opportunities to meet people. We have social dinner every month when we have to wear dress and suits. They match you up with random people and it is so fun and it is a great chance to make new friends!

    I'll say two, first the absolutely perfect layout of campus. You have majority of your classes right on academic row which makes the trip to classes easy especially in the winter when you're trying to. . .

    One important aspect of the school is the technology. Due to the school's sponsorship each students get their own iPad which is set up to have grades, assignments, ways to take notes, textbook, and more. . .

    New Hampton offered me so many opportunities that I'm grateful for, that I don't know where to start. Something that was different about New Hampton than other schools I had attended was the IB program. . .
