1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
What is unique about Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall is how the campus feels like a community. Everyone is very welcoming, and makes you feel like you aren’t an outsider. The way they care about the well being of the students, makes a difference in how people feel going about academically.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
Going to a boarding school but being a day student has opened my view to other cultures. I have hosted international students on the holidays and become close to them, and have learned about their home country and traditions.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
Don’t be afraid to meet new people. Everyone is very kind and will want to help you succeed.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
I love the environment, and how it really does feel like a community. Everyone knows each other, and looks out for one another.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
If you have a campus bookstore, go there! I love talking to the lady who runs ours, she is a great person to vent to, or get advice from.
1.) Describe the academics at your school - what did you like most about it?
What I like most about the classes at CHCH is the class size and student to kid ratio. Paying attention in class is hard, but what makes it easier is not having 25-30 kids around me. With the small class sizes it’s easier to get work done and not get distracted. What I also appreciate is how the teacher can pay close attention to all the students and help individually with anything we may need
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
Waltham is very diverse, and has a lot of activities especially in the spring. There are food places near school, so kids can sign out and walk there on the weekends or after school.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
Everyone is very inclusive. You won’t find someone who isn’t willing to welcome you into their friend group.
