A Customized Experience
Missy, Mother of Morgan '16; South Hamilton, Massachusetts: What is it that makes a parent comfortable with sending his or her child to boarding school? An outgoing, energetic child, Morgan wanted a school in which she could thrive academically, live among a diverse student body, and be part of a dynamic, competitive athletic program. At New Hampton, she's received a customized experience that fits her needs as a teenager with big dreams. A second-time boarding school parent, Missy offers some advice here to families.
Bill, Father of Peter '14; Weston, Massachusetts: When the Burgess family was trying to identify the best fit for their son Peter four years ago, they wanted a school that would provide a holistic experience. Four years later and now studying at Dartmouth College, Peter has achieved success in and outside the classroom. What resonates for his father, though, is not merely the life-changing relationships or his son's transformative growth, but the dynamic classroom learning experience and the vision of a school that strives to improve and innovate for the benefit of its students.
Doug and Helen, Parents of Caroline '16; Bedford, New Hampshire: Whether it is support in the classroom, athletic challenge, or a spirited peer group, Caroline found a home at New Hampton School. A talented student-athlete driven to succeed and passionate about the opportunites in her future, she has benefitted from the dedication of NHS faculty. As her parents attest, the New Hampton School difference can be seen in relationships and the investment adults in the community have made in their daughter.
Steven, Father of Stevie '12 and Chris '16; Ashburn, Virgnia: The Berry family did not know much about boarding school when they sent their first child Stevie '11 to NHS. Yet, when they watched him graduate with a global perspective and skills that were not as easily attained in his previous suburban public high school, the family recognized a school that was meeting the needs of every child. It was soon after that they sent their second son, Christopher, to NHS.
