A Day in the Life of….
“I like the internationalism of the students because I get to talk to people from different cultures and they have different opinions all around the dorm. I think the dorm parents play quite an important role in the dorm. They organise us all together and we can go to them at any time and ask for help with our studies. I am doing the full IB diploma, so I am doing Economics, English and Russian as high level classes and Maths, Chemistry and Environmental systems and societies as my standard level classes.
I want to become an entrepreneur and I want to study Economics and Entrepreneurship at University. So I feel like I have developed a lot as a person at ACS as there is such a diverse range of activities.
I am representing the school news and also doing lots of voluntary work with the Lower school. It is helping with younger children and I feel like I am developing my communication skills a lot, which is encouraged by the school. I really enjoy it”.
