1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
One aspect that O.S has that no other school is how our school is split into Green or White Teams. These team all year have a friendly competition that not only helps you make friends, but also not feel like the new kid at a school.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
The best thing that happened to me at O.S was making my longer term friends.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
I would advice kids to have an open mind. Don't worry you will get through it. Just breathe.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
I loved the atmosphere and feeling of home.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
High school may be scary, but O.S takes that fear away when you are embraced with friends, facutly, and a lot of the pets on campus.
