1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
The school has a special educational system, which I really like. In this school, I learn not only knowledge but also an ability: I am able to learn new things by myself. I became more responsible for myself after I came to here. We have mandatory volunteer work, which connects everyone together and makes us more responsible.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
Four years ago, when I just came here, I was shy and scared. Now I am able to lead other people and create many new ideas for my school. At the same time I learned many new sports and made many new friends here. It was an incredible experience to come to Delphi!
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
I would like to get on the Student Council earlier and do more things for school.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
People in my school are friendly and kind. They are always willing to help each other. I'm so glad that I chose this school as my high school!
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
We just got a new rec-room and little theater!! Check it out!
1.) Describe the academics at your school - what did you like most about it?
Before I came to this school, I couldn't imagine that how can people learn things by themselves; after I came here, I understood it. I learned many new subjects by myself, which helped me become more confident, for I realized I was capable to do things by myself. At the same time, I was able to apply the things that I learned, for in each subject, we had many drills or practices which made sure we can apply the knowledge.
1.) Describe the athletics at your school - what did you like most about it?
In our school, you will never need to worry about how to play a new sport. The coaches and teammates always welcome you and support you. Even though you make mistakes during games, they never scout you. They will help you find out the mistakes and encourage to do it better next time. I improved my skills so much, and I really appreciate my coaches and teammates. At the same time, I started learning how to lead a group, which was challenging and exciting,
1.) Describe the arts program at your school - what did you like most about it?
Our Visual Arts, Music, and Theatre program are always strong. In each program, students are able to build strong bases for their futures. I joined Varsity Choir and Jazz Choir, which were all so much fun. We learned many great songs, even though they were not even English, and I improved a lot on my singing. It was a great experience to join the group.
1.) Describe the dining arrangements at your school.
We have many different dishes for every meal. Even though you might be allergic to some food, you still have many other choices. We have salad bar, different kinds of juice, milk, etc. When you don't want eat "food," you can make sandwiches!
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
There are several good restaurants near our school!! I always go there when I go out.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
People here are easy-going and friendly. It's easy to make friends here!
