Interlochen was my first school studying in the USA. Everybody in the residence program was very welcoming and friendly that this new and almost frightening experience turned into a very exciting and eye-opening experience. I was able to focus on my study of music and art thanks to the support of the resident staffs and teachers. Other than the awesome artistic program that Interlochen has to offer, it also has various other activities in between semesters such as Quidditch where people get to play the exciting sport in the Harry Potter franchise, or International Lunch where students get to cook and introduce their food culture to everybody else. Interlochen is indeed a great place for young aspiring artists from around the world to gather and spend their highschool with equally passionate artists.

I had an overall great experience, The staff, school, teachers all strived to assist students reach their goals. The staff was very supportive and protective of the students and encouraged all students to strive to be the best in their chosen fields of study. The teachers & students also worked well together in a diverse setting with tolerance and patience. I recommend this school for students mature enough to leave home and who wish to excel in performance and education. This experience has opened many opportunities for me in my field that I would have not been afforded in my hometown. I am grateful for the opportunity to have attended this school as it has expanded my horizons and experiences and continues to do so.
