Reflections and Advice:

1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
School is a special time and place for everyone. It is where we make our first friends and the best of memories. This post on school quotes for kids will help you motivate your little ones to attend school and enjoy every moment of it. The lessons that are taught in school stay with us forever. They also play an important part in shaping the person we become in later lives. Also, the extracurricular activities that we indulge in help us find out where our interest lies. So, if your child is losing interest in school or ignoring the importance of punctuality and sincerity in their lives, read the quotes that we have collected in this post. They will help them get the push they need for a fresh start.

I think my favorite part is that I was given a chance to to attend a school as great as Ridley College and it forever holds a special place in my heart.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
Always ran away when a the boys have a cup of water in their hands and offer it to you and trust me its not water.

Academics:

1.) Describe the academics at your school - what did you like most about it?
My academic were never a struggle for me.

Athletics:

1.) Describe the athletics at your school - what did you like most about it?
I wasn't very athletic, to say the very least. With Asthma and allergies, It was safe to say, I dreaded when I saw "gym class" schedule on my time chart. I think Asthma was not my biggest problem cause with my inhaler it was controllable, but allergies was not just something I could put in my mouth, breath in the medicine and act like everything doesn't hurt like hell... cause it does. But overall Gym class wasn't that bad.

Art, Music, and Theatre:

1.) Describe the arts program at your school - what did you like most about it?
I never did any of those activities above.

1.) Describe the extracurriculars offered at your school - what did you like most about it?
I didn't take part in any school activities.

Dorm Life:

1.) Describe the dorm life in your school - what did you like most about it?
Sadly I didn't stay in the dorms due to the tuition.

Dining:

1.) Describe the dining arrangements at your school.
My favorite dinning time was lunch, not because it was a free period, not because I didn't have to listen to my professor go on and on about another topic that bored me to death, it was because of the food; literally. I mean if it was the human version for heaven buffet, then heaven was right in front of you. Salads, crispy French fries and the creamy milkshake your mouth will every taste.

Social and Town Life:

1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
the town was peace and calming.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
MY social life was one the=at my school was interesting.
