1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
Unique boarding school with discipline, values and principles. It fosters a camaraderie that I have not seen anywhere else.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
I had some spare time, and thank goodness there was an excellent library. MMA has always counted with great libraries and great librarians. I miss those reading sessions in Missouri!
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
At the time, we did not have the apps and information that we have on the internet. We all arrived blindfolded but where positively amazed with the experience. Nowadays, I would suggest MMA to set up an app to promote the school with information enough for new candidates to organize their lives before arriving to the school.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
The experience between military discipline and academic performance. The long lasting friendship experiences.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
The beauty of the country side in Audrian County is unique. The school has extended and plains for running. There is a backdoor wild campus with creeks and set up for camping experiences.
1.) Describe the academics at your school - what did you like most about it?
Classes where very authentic. At the time, many of the Professors where retired military officers who had very nourishing experience from the real world. For example our History Professor (Leadabrand) had been in the Vietnam War and served the US Army in a base in Western Germany. Our Mathematics Professor (Ableman) could explain formulas in the applied world as well. We had innovative classes such as Sociology and Psychology and it was a real pleasure to go to school! The diversity of classes prepared us for a competitive environment.
1.) Describe the athletics at your school - what did you like most about it?
We had all sorts of sports, from swimming, to tennis, to soccer. It was really great to be on shape. It was great to host rival teams, but also to visit other schools, as this would be a great opportunity to travel and get to see other regions.
1.) Describe the extracurriculars offered at your school - what did you like most about it?
Some of us got selected to represent the school at the Presidential Classroom Organization. I was able to attend this 1 week program and go to Washington D.C. to visit the capital. I know there where airplane piloting lessons and other sporting activities as well.
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
The offer of the town was limited to Walmart, cinema and a couple of diners, restaurants and fast foods. But this was very good in the sense that we where never exposed to any inconveniences, and would be also happy to go back to the school.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
Hanging out, practicing sports fostered true friendships and camaraderie.
