Reflections and Advice:

1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
Well to start off the Orme school is so much different then normal boarding school. I have went to about 4 different boarding schools. When I found Orme, I knew it was going to be a good fit from the first moment on campus i knew the environment of the school was happy and loving. I love how the teachers aren't just our teachers they are our family. You cant find that at most high school or boarding school and that's why the Orme School is unique but there are so many things that make it different and way better then boarding schools. If you don't believe me come tour and find out for yourself.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
I have been at the Orme school for a couple of months now and I feel like it has made me a better man that I'm becoming then any other school could make me because they believe in you and that's something a kid always needs.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
Be yourself never try to be someone who you are and if a couple of people don't like you who cares there are other people at school that will like you. Just be you and outgoing.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
I don't even know there's so many things that i didn't like i loved them. Its hard to sum them all to one.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
If you come to campus and I'm still here make sure to ask for Andrew Schultz for your tour guide. If you stay for dinner for your tour make sure to go to chapel hill and watch the sunset i have never seen something more gorgeous then that sunset on that hill.


1.) Describe the academics at your school - what did you like most about it?
I enjoyed Joshes class. Which was U.S history because every week we would have a debate. I have to be honest every class I had had its ups and downs but every teacher teaches to what your strengths are and that's why I love all my teachers. Every night for homework i had any where from an hour to two hours sometimes i never had homework because most teachers give you time to do it at the end of class.


1.) Describe the athletics at your school - what did you like most about it?
I love are athletic director he's young but also knows how to make us feel like he is not just our coach he is someone we can talk to when ever we need someone. But all of our coaching staff is like that. They make you feel like your part of a team and if one member gets in trouble the whole team runs which is what makes a team a better team. It helps with the sportsmanship and also with holding your brothers and sisters accountable.

Art, Music, and Theatre:

1.) Describe the arts program at your school - what did you like most about it?
I am a theater nerd I love to act but at the same time the teacher makes it feel like your not in horse collar aka the theater that your actually where the play is set.

Extracurricular Opportunities:

1.) Describe the extracurriculars offered at your school - what did you like most about it?
I love cooking and every-time i got time to bake or make something. I would just make a ton of it and give it out to my friends and the staff and never gotten anyone to say that's gross so that's a good thing.

Dorm Life:

1.) Describe the dorm life in your school - what did you like most about it?
The dorm life is awesome. There is boys camp and girls camp. The rooms are pretty big dorms.


1.) Describe the dining arrangements at your school.
Dining hall food is dinning hall food.

Social and Town Life:

1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
Its on a 26,000 acre ranch and its the most beatiful thing i have ever seen in my life.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
I am a very social person and have never had a problem with having social opportunities while i had the chance.

I would say that Caravan is a really unique experience at our school, that other schools usually don’t participate in. Students get put into groups depending on your likes, and with at least two teachers. . .

When I walk outside, I can look Up-top and see Cows. I'm from the city so it's fun to be living on a working ranch. The Teachers are very hands-on, they won't let you. . .
