How long have you been at YIS?
I have been at YIS for 2 years.
What do you like about learning here at YIS?
The classes at YIS are very engaging.

What sports or activities outside of class are you involved with, and why do you like being involved in them? 

I play in the soccer team and I’m a member of the drama club. I really enjoy soccer so I wanted to try playing in a team this year. Drama is really fun too, and after missing out on joining the club last year, I really wanted to get involved this year. 

What are two things you would miss if you left YIS?

I would miss all my friends and playing soccer for the YIS team. It's fun to play official games with all my teammates.

What is your relationship with your teachers like here at YIS?

I have a good relationship with my teachers. I think they consider me to be a good student.

Which teacher would you like to trade places with, and why?

Honestly, I would not like to trade places with a teacher. I don’t think teaching is a skill that I’m good at, and I don’t think I would enjoy it.

What is your favorite YIS event of the school year?

My favorite event at YIS is the last day of school. It’s fun and I get to do things that we can’t do on regular school days.


What is your favorite space on campus?

I love the Cafeteria. It’s filled with positive energy, I get to talk with my friends and the food is delicious.

How have you changed since being at YIS?

I think I have grown up since joining YIS.  My view of the world has changed compared to when I was an elementary student. I have learned about things like the environment and how some people don’t care about damaging our planet.

What do you think makes YIS a special place to learn?

We have a lot of freedom in our learning and there are lots of interesting classes that allow us to explore different things.
