I graduated from Lanna School in 2009, and I took with me memories that will be treasured for life.
I didn’t speak any English at all when I entered Lanna School. I had little idea of what I was interested in or what I wanted to achieve in the future. I didn’t even have a positive view of formal schooling. But I found that Lanna School was very different. Teachers here care deeply for students. They know all students by their first name. They help students see the wonders of maths, science, and arts. They make classes really engaging and meaningful. For example, my English teacher went through 33 drafts of my first essay and tirelessly explained to me the essence of essay writing, which is one of the most important skills for academic success. The comments on report cards are by far the longest and most personal I’ve ever seen. In all classes teachers encourage us to explore our interests, hopes and dreams.
The most difficult part about schooling is to make the content meaningful, and to help students grow into confident, committed, and passionate individuals. Lanna School is the place that does just that.
