      Please share a few thoughts about you中国福利彩票app靠谱吗r experiences with West Nottingham Academy: I had a lot of fun and ultimately did a lot of work at WNA.

The active community really helps you中国福利彩票app靠谱吗 prepare for college life.

      Please share a few thoughts about you中国福利彩票app靠谱吗r experiences with West Nottingham Academy: To start off, one will be able to tell that West Nottingham isn't an ordinary school. From the setting of the campus to the small classes the academy offers a different lifestyle for the students. From the past three years I have been able to grow under the guidance of teachers more compared to those of public school. Each student can ask and will receive special attention for specific problems that he or she faces in any class through personalized instruction with the teacher. The wide variety and flexibility of teachers gives students the freedom to choose/focus on classes which they would potentially pursue at a college or university. The tight-knit community of faculty, staff, and students is more appropriately described as a family that embraces and assists its diverse population. These examples all attest to the one thing I know for sure; that at West Nottingham Academy everyone brings something different so we can all grow as one.

      Current Student/Year Graduated: Will Graduate in 2015

      Please share a few thoughts about you中国福利彩票app靠谱吗r experiences with West Nottingham Academy: I can't say enough good things about WNA. Even though I'm a day student, I find myself coming to campus every weekend to see my friends and participate in whatever activities are going on that weekend. The community here is outstanding. My teachers are always looking for new ways to challenge me, and are willing to meet with me outside of school to work on projects, or even to create new classes tailored to my interests. My friends are from different countries, and I have received countless invitations to places like China, Korea, and Nigeria. The college guidance is phenomenal; I have always felt completely prepared throughout this process, and I'm hoping for some good news this March! I am so incredibly happy to be part of the WNA family.
