The house system is unique to different boarding schools and the dress code.

My senior year was the best year because I had the most free time to care for myself and go to the gym, eat healthy, and work on college.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
Good luck and never silence yourself.

Stephens is the best dorm and be nice to the dining staff.
1.) Describe the athletics at your school - what did you like most about it?
They definitely taught a lot of self discipline and forced me to take care of my body even off season. To regularly stretch and eat healthily in preparation for a tough workout or just to take care of this body that I have.
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
Starbucks is near but everything else is pretty expensive.

Its a big enough school to not feel obligated to have toxic relationships with people who are not healthy for you.
