Through out all my years of attending phillips academy high school i always had teachers and other staff help out with overcoming challenges i have faced with like being ready for the next steps of my future or just setting goals for myself for the next 5-10 years. I learn some many new things ; how to improve your essay papers, how to improve your skills like time managing and communcation and etc . As a student i had my days when giving up was on my mind but that wasn't going to be your mindset for long in Phillips. They always make sure you have support and a growth mindset. Its the only way to make it out and succeed. The principal and teachers make sure before you leave and go off to begin this new life , they make sure you are prepared before its time. Its just amazing how much the staff of Phillips will do to the students that attend there.

MY school provides me the resources and help i need to further my education and attend college.My dreams for the future is to become a well known chef and to have my own catering company and restaurants. I'm interested in Hospital management and this is my dream because I have received a certificate of achievement for diligently and fluently working hard throughout my work setting. I also was a hard worker Me working at Rome joy's catering company as taught me the different types of utensils in the kitchen but also all the skills it takes to manage a catering company and how to manage my own.One day I would like to own my own catering company and also my own restaurants. my school helps me with this.
My experience at Phillips Academy has been very good,The school has good teachers who really care about and understand their students. Phillips will help you get into any college you want, they are going to make sure that everyone is on track to be successful in life.
