Reflections and Advice:

1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
The teachers were very helpful in assisting and facilitating learning in the classroom. The campus was small and the school community was comfortable and tranquil.

I received very helpful assistance from staff in searching and getting accepted to college.

It was a awesome place to spent my last year's of high school and the friendships I formed was the most rewarding aspect for me!
