    I absolutely loved my experience at Rabun Gap! Been boarding there since I was a freshman and I always felt supported by the teachers and students. Most of the teachers I've had have been great and very supportive, even when I haven't been the best in their class. Very easy to be involved in various clubs, sports, and activities. The facilities are fantastic, I personally am very fond of the Arts and Theater building. Very easy and necessary to find friends. The dorms are great, especially the senior dorm. The food is better than most but has its off days occasionally. The only complaints I have are that headmaster cares more about reputation than the students and the school could use a bigger place for students to hang out at during their free time.
    Rabun Gap Nacoochee School is a special place providing students with great academic, artistic and athletic opportunities. Additionally, it represents 50 countries in its student body which contributes to the unique experience of each student. I have made friends from 50 countries and learned how to embrace my heritage while celebrating others and their identities. Being a part of Honor Council, Inclusion Initiative and Global Awareness Panel, I have had a chance to experience the integrity and diversity of this place at its best. All of these things lead to creating a tight-knit community that becomes like a second home to all its members.
