This is my second year working at Hoosac School. Already, I've come to terms with the fact that this is a place I can see myself spending my entire career at. The overall moral is limitless. Working in admissions, I literally had a family visit to tour campus and leave saying "this is the most welcoming environment we've ever stepped foot on."

Our kids are respectful, enthusiastic learners with a will to succeed. Working here has taught me that you CAN enjoy going to work everyday. I wouldn't feel this way if it weren't for the students and faculty alike!

I went to Hoosac for my last two years of high school. As an international student, living in a dorm with other students and teachers was a new experience for me. The fact that Hoosac only have 110-120 students and the faculty is very friendly made the whole transition a lot easier for me than if I went to another prep school. The campus is just amazing! Especially during fall with all the leaves and the nice weather. The food is pretty good. The staff have an open mind to suggestions and are making sure the students are eating quality. The sport programs are decent. Basketball, Ice Hockey and Lacrosse are the main and most serious of all. The only thing I think they need to change are the text books. Other than that, my two years a Hoosac were great and will always have good memories. Thank you Hoosac!
I am a senior her at Hoosac School and it is the best school I have ever attended. The faculty in this school is very welcoming and caring to both students and the parents. The school presents a great opportunity for every student to explore their full potential through the academic background and the sports sector. The dorms in the school are comfortable and the nutrition is great, which facilitates for comfortable and suitable learning atmosphere. The school culture is also great and allows for the accommodation of students from different parts of the world, which again enhances the social skills of students. There are many after school programs offered here in Hoosac School, which include the guidance, and counseling sessions, which helps in maintaining the school discipline, and other sessions that ensure the students maintain a good health.
