What I like about my academic environment is that the teachers are always making their lessons fascinating. For instance, when you're in history your teacher will make fun projects with the student's help, the students will help the history teacher come up with ideas to help the kids have fun with their projects, like boys vs girls.

What I liked about the athletics program is that your coaches will always stay after practice to help you when they see that you need help with a drill or that they think they have the option to help you with the sport. Another thing is that your teammates will always support you in games or at practice by giving you advice.
Art, Music, and Theatre:
1.) Describe the arts program at your school - what did you like most about it?
I had only been in Music and overall in this class you can find that this environment is very free. The music teacher is very flexible with your time. whether you need help with a song or getting ready for a performance. The class itself is very fun because you get to work with other students that love music and play music with others with different instruments.
1.) Describe the extracurriculars offered at your school - what did you like most about it?
At the school, there are a lot of events that the students are always welcome to join. There is this thing called the Orme games where students go against each other to see who is the best when it comes to tieing a knot or camping in a tent or a race.
1.) Describe the dorm life in your school - what did you like most about it?
Dorm life is very fun when you share a room with another. You both are given a survey that the watch person will fill out about what you are comfortable with and what you aren't comfortable with. The rooms have a lot of space for each person and the bathrooms are very clean. The closets are very huge and the sinks are a very good size for each room.
1.) Describe the dining arrangements at your school.
When dining at the Orme school you get to eat different foods from different places in the world. whether it's testing noddles from Vietnam. Or eating chicken and bread from Ethiopia you get to taste what they eat. And the dining never makes you not feel at home. And dining also has vegan and vegetarian options.
Social and Town Life:
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
The school does not have a town.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
My social life has been pretty active lately. I've been making an effort to connect with friends more often and try new things. Last weekend, we went out to a new restaurant and had a great time trying all sorts of different dishes. I also joined a local sports league, which has been a great way to meet new people and stay active. Overall, I'm really happy with how my social life is going and I'm excited to see what new experiences and adventures are in store.
