It’s Friday night. You have finished primping, you smell great, and you feel fabulous. You are ready to hit the town. If you are part of the 95% of the Upper School student body, you aren’t heading out to meet a significant other, or a “thing.” You are probably heading to the movies or dinner with some close friends.
This is a common Chadwick occurrence. Who has time to date? Who has the time and effort to be in a relationship? Who even is there to date?
There are a ton of advantages to going to a small school. Namely the one-on-one attention with teachers, the close relationships you have with your peers, more opportunity for leadership positions, and to try new things.
But there are also some definite negatives. With so few people in the student body, you run out of people to like, to date, and to get to know pretty quickly. Or at least that’s what a majority of students think.
