Reflections and Advice:

1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
We normally have 6 lessons a day and the school makes sure the lessons aren't too long for our understanding and the six lessons are very useful to us in that we cover alot and have time for extra curricular activities unlike other boarding schools.We also had good counciling sessions every Wednesday after classes for everyone it actually helped alot of students with problems.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
Honestly I learnt alot while I was in a boarding school like doing things independently and learning not to depend on parents and also being self centered which I came to realize that I would have not learnt that if I was attending a day school.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
Boarding school is really nice tho it's hard for students attending it for the first time they would have difficulty in living with new people and missing their families and parents but that teaches you to be independent and boarding school gives you time to concentrate on school.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
I liked the environment, the meals and the community fellow students were really nice to me which made everything easy for me.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
Chose friends who have similar dreams to yours and similar character that's the main thing and it will make life easier for you in boarding school.

Academics:

1.) Describe the academics at your school - what did you like most about it?
I liked that the teachers were available after classes so that students who had difficulty in courses would ask for guidance.

Athletics:

1.) Describe the athletics at your school - what did you like most about it?
We used to have competitions with different schools each week in swimming and basketball and our coaches were really hard on us to work harder so we could get better at it

Art, Music, and Theatre:

1.) Describe the arts program at your school - what did you like most about it?
I was only participating in dance and drama and we once had a competition at the national theater with different schools and we were inspired by successful acters we found there.

Extracurricular Opportunities:

1.) Describe the extracurriculars offered at your school - what did you like most about it?
I was in the Red Cross club and we often went to the ophanage and donated things to them.

Dorm Life:

1.) Describe the dorm life in your school - what did you like most about it?
I liked that our dorm rooms were really spaced and were easy for us to clean without any complaint.

Dining:

1.) Describe the dining arrangements at your school.
We were often given a balanced diet of nice food and our dining hall was nicely organized and enough.

Social and Town Life:

1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
The town surrounding my school was really busy but not noisy and it had all kinds of services around.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?

What is Progressive Education?
The promise of progressive education is as the students come to the solution, they’re active, they’re engaged, they’re motivated, and they’re learning. Most progressive schools encourage students to explore other areas of their development where young people find focus or uncover the contentment of stillness. It is about learning how to think, not what to think.
