Students decide to come to New Hampton School for a variety of reasons, from our strong athletic program or academic support to the International Baccalaureate. However, they continue to return year after year because of our dynamic and supportive group of people. We asked some students about what they enjoy most about the New Hampton School community.

One Big Family

“One of the things that I enjoy the most about the New Hampton School community is that it feels like a second family to me. Everyone is very friendly and always trying to help each other. I also like that the teachers always do whatever they can to help me with everything. Everyone is very welcoming and supporting, even though we are all from different places all over the world we are all very close and always supporting each other.” —Daniel ’21

A Place to Be Yourself

“What I enjoy most about the New Hampton School Community is how welcoming it is and how it allows you to be your true self without repercussions.When I came as a Freshman, I was a shy kid with very low self-esteem. But after spending three years in the community this is no longer the case. I have made lifelong friends that are always building me up and I am so grateful for that.” —Ben ’21

Where Everybody Knows Your Name

“I enjoy the welcoming atmosphere and the close community. Everybody knows each other and everyone is very kind. I have moved around a lot and New Hampton School was the easiest school to adapt to because of how close and caring the community is.” —Emma ’21

Encourages Individuality

“There are too many things I enjoy but one thing that has stood out to me in my past three years, how you are able to truly find yourself with peers and faculty whole wholeheartedly support you. High school is normally a time where you feel peer pressured and want to fit in. At New Hampton School, you are encouraged to find what you love and to pursue new experiences which transforms everyone in a different and unique way. The faculty encourage individuality and want to hear your opinions. Here, you don’t feel like your true self is disguised but it is encouraged for you to be your best and true self.” —Haley ’21
