1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
I feel that Cotter was unique against other boarding schools because it had both traditional day students and boarding students. Many students in my class would “adopt” a student to have to family gatherings and many gained American families from that.Because of my time at Cotter I decided to pursue international business and study abroad in Spain. I continue to travel and visit some of the friends I made at cotter.
