1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
It had a great sense of community on my first day I felt right at home. Everyone was really welcoming the teachers set out to make sure that we were all well included. The dorms were great and my roommate was amazing, but overall I did not return because the move from home was too much for me. Though I would definitely recommend for perspective students to give it a try.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
The best thing about boarding school was the friendships I made that shaped me to become the person I am today. I didn't get injured once in a soccer game the entire season which is a miracle because I'm pretty clumsy. Making the decision to go made me get out of my comfort zone. So don't think just do it.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
Talk to more people and everyone is just as nervous as you are. Plus, if people are mean you have to remember that they are human. As a result, sometimes we latch out when something is going wrong in their lour lives. It's not just our personalities.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
The freedom to try something different and challenging everyday.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
Try the options in the cafe! Your welcome.
1.) Describe the academics at your school - what did you like most about it?
I was challenged to keep pushing my self. At my previous school I felt like the teachers never really to the time to inspire me and at Ridley I was inspired to be a better student by becoming part of a community that strives for excellence.
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
When we did venture out to town on out weekend trips it was the best time because we got to meet locals and gain a deeper understanding of the culture which was amazing.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
Let's face it school is school. So there are always going to be people who make you want to go back to the comfort of your home. Though, once you learn to just be happy for with who you are the rest melts away. Overall, people were nice, but there were some characters that played minor roles towards my dissatisfaction.
