Reflections and Advice:

1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
In my opinion, I believe that our school is different from other schools in that everyone gets along at some point because we live together. We are brothers at Southern Prep Academy.Another reason we are in a different and better school to attend is that our classes don't have 20 kids in each. My biggest class has had 9 people. My smallest class only had 5. This helps everyone pass classes because the teacher can actually help you.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
My best thing that happen to me was that I feel that I matured from being at the school. My grades have been higher than ever, I've made some good friends.Their is one friend at the school without him School would have been different that is Cook. if you come to the school look for a boy named Cook.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
I have the best advice for the new kids have fun, don't make yourself sad by not having fun. Another good rule is just follow directions if you follow direction you will better off at this school.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
What I liked most about my school is the sports that you can play. Without sports, the school would be different. Another thing I like about the school is all the parades we get to be in.If their is one thing i would change about the school is that we would be in more parades.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
If you come to the school you are welcomed by all the staff and kids. We as students will make you feel welcomed. At least they did for me and everyone else. I want to say Charlie is the best company.

Academics:

1.) Describe the academics at your school - what did you like most about it?
Our academics at the school are the best. Before I came to Southern Prep Academy, I made Ds,Cs and sometimes made a B. But at this moment I haven't had a D yet im on the all A's list because they help you out.The classes are the smallest classes you will get my smallest class at the moment has 4 people in it. This helps us out by the teacher teaching us on the students pace if you have a question they will answer.

Athletics:

1.) Describe the athletics at your school - what did you like most about it?
I'm just going to start this off by saying we have the best 8 man football team out their right now. Our football team just won Division 2 champs. The reason we have such a good team is the way our coaches coach us, without them we wouldn't be good.There are so many sports to choose from. The thing I like about the school is that you have to play a sport, it is mandatory at this school.

Art, Music, and Theatre:

Extracurricular Opportunities:

1.) Describe the extracurriculars offered at your school - what did you like most about it?
There is a team at the school that is the Drone Team we have the first student drone demonstration team known to man. We go to demonstration Air shows its a lot of fun.

Dorm Life:

1.) Describe the dorm life in your school - what did you like most about it?
The dorm life is better than I thought. Like I've said, we are brothers at this school.Now their is one thing I would love to change is that if we could have the football team in a dorm by their self's. We have roommates at the school so you won't feel left out you will always have someone to talk to.If you do by any chance have a problem in the company, your inn if you get it ok with someone they will let you move.

Dining:

1.) Describe the dining arrangements at your school.
I have one this to say about the dinning the food here is not regular school food we have the nicest lunch ladies here and they sure do known how to cook.

Social and Town Life:

1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
The town that our school is in is a very old town, but everyone is so nice to us. They are very supportive of your sports, it's just a good place to be.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
I want to say that without my past and this school I wouldn't be able to put down my phone this school has taught me that my phone isn't as important to me then I thought. You can text people at night when you do get your phone.
