1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
The entire experience was not only unique, it was life changing! It opened my eyes and mind up to world I wasn't familiar with. I was able to meet, connect and bond with students from other countries, cultures and walks of life. I was able to learn solid independence and the value of family at the same time.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
I was able to explore and learn myself, I matured and just learned to be my best self!
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
Be patient while you adjust and learn your surroundings, some things may take time to adjust to especially being away from home. Explore, be open and try any new things that are offered and be open to meeting and becoming friends with all sorts of people from different walks of life! ENJOY, love your life.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
Overall the chance to be great in a place that offers and encouraged exactly that! My junior and senior year was awesome and I am so glad I went to Middlesex
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
Hanging out in the Terry room is the best. I loved my experience at Middlesex, you have to make the most of it and enjoy all the moments
1.) Describe the academics at your school - what did you like most about it?
The academics were a challenge however, it made me a more solid student especially in math and that is my most challenging subject. I was pushed and encouraged me to work hard, no give up and ask or help even when I wasn't totally sure I needed it. The thing I liked the most was the huge amount of support from staff and peers
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
The town is kind of small, quiet. It has a busy little town square with the commuter rail station and stores and food shops. I don't know much about the surrounding area except that there's a mall close by. It's very peaceful and I really liked that.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
Everyone has their own thing however we don't come together and hang out from time to time. We also would do school things like trips to the movies or outlet mall. We also would go to theme parks and the zoo. My campus life was fun
