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,
1.) Describe the athletics at your school - what did you like most about it?
The athletics at middlesex are very good and very intense. Every student is required to participate in a sport every season. The facilities are beautiful and the coaches are very involved. There is not a ton of school spirit though.
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
Concord is adorable and very safe. Lots of families.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
I loved the social life, however it was a little intense. People can be brutal but if you are confident and have a thick skin you will be fine!

- Northeastern The community that is centered around the circle is welcoming, and the nice fall and spring days leave the students socializing on the circle during free blocks throughout the day and in their free time. . .
