Reflections and Advice:

1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
Middelsex has a beautiful campus. Perfectly manicured lawns, gorgeous chapel, amazing dorms, and lovely classrooms. It is very challenging academically and athletically, and the faculty pushes its students to be the best versions of themselves. The social life is very fun but can be intense and intimidating for those who are shy or reserved.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
My friends are the best thing to come from boarding school. I am still very close to my friends from middlesex because you bond so much.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
I would have focused more on my studies from the start and taken advantage of office hours. Also, there are Saturday classes just FYI.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
The beautiful campus and the small community.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
Check out the new music building and walk up to the turf fields! Also check out the art department located in the theater,
