It will definitely be worth it. Most boarders apply for their 10th grade year
It’s really really hard. and also for friends too. Usually I just chat with my dad over skype, and I call my mom every sunday. I got used to not being able to come home, but it’s a good thing to get used to especially if you’re planning to go to college
I’ve never heard of that school so I can’t really say
You’re really never allowed to have your phone out unless it’s during your free time. So basically not during dinner/lunch, class, or meetings
If you already go to a really good private school, then I really don’t suggest applying to another school. But if you’re really determined, then you should talk to your mom about it and list the pros and cons of living away from home. Like for example, it would make you more independent and you really want to experience a new setting.
Just try not to make it seem like you hate where you’re living.
There swim team is really good, but other than that I don’t like the campus much and it’s in the middle of nowhere.
It’s probably a pretty good school though. Their swimming pool is awesome and I’m envious of it
IT’S IN MY TOWN!
Yes my best friend went there for one year, hated it, and went back to public school. She said she didn’t like the formal dress code they had, and plus there was a chapel service that was required every day, and she hated it. So that’s her opinion.
Here are some I would recommend you look into:
Exeter, Mercersburg, Peddie, Deerfield, Phillips Andover, Lawrenceville, and that’s all I can think of at the moment.
I’m gonna make a masterlist of this one day.
I think you should definitely go for it or at least try. There are SOOO many international people that go to boarding school/college, so it’s not just you!
But you know what I recently found out? I found out that there are a lot of good art schools in florida. But since I didn’t go to a private school for arts, I can’t really recommend much. (I didn’t even know they existed)
They are around 10 to 20 students per class, but it depends on the demand. My Chinese AP level class only had 3 students in it.
Um that depends on you, and your parents. I say you should go, but you should make a list of reasons why you should or shouldn’t go.
- Dorm life
- Academics, what classes they are taking, the teachers
- Rules, dress code
- Dining, if the food is good
- Sports, and what sport you’re interested and what they are playing
- Clubs, if they are actually active
- Campus life in general
Basically any of the questions that are asked here are pretty good (other than the weird ones).
You can date in school, but it’s not that easy because there aren’t many places to go and plus you can’t go to each other’s rooms except at specific times. And you aren’t allowed to smoke anything or drink anything on campus
It depends on what boarding school you go to.
Just be yourself really. If you end up touring with a group of students, you can talk to them, but honestly no one will really remember until you actually attend the school.
The campus? I think it’s very beautiful, even though it’s kind of small. There are pictures located on the sidebar
