Reflections and Advice:

1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
I just graduated from the Delphian School. I used to go to school in China, and I started my high school education here three years ago. I am so lucky that I chose Delphian and it chose me as well.The Delphian school is special because although everyone has his individual program, our purpose is the same. We learn from each other, practice to become more competent leaders, and to find out who we really are. We work hard for ourselves, not for anyone else.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
I found so many intelligent and hardworking people at the school. I thought I was good in many areas before I came to the Delphian School, but I have seen students who are outstanding. I saw the gap between those people and me, and it encouraged me to work harder.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
Become more outgoing and get to know more people.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
It has a very special program for student's study. And the school really cares about each student.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
The Delphian School helped me learn to take higher responsibility, use myself as the resource to solve problems, lead others, keep my integrity and show my integrity. I am grateful for all my experiences here. The Delphian School has provided me opportunities to fail, to learn about myself and to restart. I used to believe that a school only focuses on its top students, but Delphian totally changed that idea. Everyone at the school loves every student, and students truly care about each other.
