    Our school is very diverse and provides many opportunities for leadership. The teachers are great! All teachers have to come to school at 07:15 for extra tutoring; if you need help with anything, they are there for you. The atmosphere is great with students from all over the world. Our school is a boarding school, and there are retired military personnel all over campus we can go to for any problems in our academic and personal life. Everyone is very supportive and the students here have a special bonds with each other making it a very welcoming campus.

    The academic of the institute are stellar and the faculty is there to ensure their student succeed. They are always willing to help and the grading system is also fair too. The school will for sure prepare you for any college you plan on attending. On the military side of things, the advisors are not really there to see you succeed, but do the opposite. They only seem to point out everything you do wrong instead of trying to help you succeed and make you into a better leader. Overall, I love the teachers and I enjoy the learning experience I am able to have here. It also feels like I am at college already due to being independent and having to do my own laundry and ensuring I am responsible of my own tasks.
    The Institute is definitely what you make of it.

    Although the military aspect of the Institute is watered down for the high school cadets, it has a good handle on military tradition.

    The most important aspect of the school is relationships. As a leader or follower, cadets are forced to communicate, live and cooperate with people they may not initially like. This skill is vital for future working environments of the cadets, learning how to effectively follow or lead anyone, and to do so effectively.
