Hopkins School Reviews

Without a doubt, Hopkins is one of the most academically rigorous and intellectually vibrant private school in Connecticut, if not the whole country. Across the board, my teachers were knowledgable and genuinely engaged, and my peers were on average far more motivated and intellectually curious than my current peers at a top tier university. We may not be the best at sports (although we did have a few very strong teams and were at least decent at most things), but this is simply the result of the students and administration alike placing more of an emphasis on academics (and isn't this how it should be anyway at a Prep School?). I cannot conceive of a more thorough college preparatory experience, and I felt confident in my collegiate studies the minute I arrived on campus. It is impossible to leave Hop without being able to write the pants off a paper, and understanding how to manage your time well.

Hopkins is by far the most academically focused school in CT. Every athlete strives for As, and doing exceptionally academically is an expectation. Almost every kid in the school would be at the top of their respective public school classes, but while this may be demeaning, it also means every kid is incredibly prepared for college, and many alumni come back to say that Hopkins was infinitely times harder than college. Placements at the school are exceptional, but again, that is expected of the world class students that attend the institution.
Attending Hopkins has been one of the best experiences of my life. Coming from a public school where there was not a single advanced class, and the teachers seemed to loathe their jobs, it was an absolute breath of fresh air to step onto the (beautiful) campus. The admissions committee does an amazing job of choosing students who are mature, well-mannered, inclusive, and kind. Whether students are from Greenwich or from the absolute worst part of New Haven, everyone almost always gets along well (Unlike other schools that I had friends attending, or looked at myself, such as a certain school starting with C and ending with an -oate). Not to mention the absolutely amazing academics and advanced programs. Recently we've begun adding online classes into the older students' curriculums, so that students that want to take a class we don't offer-like Arabic or meteorology, off the top of my head-can. I can talk for hours, but overall it is just absolutely amazing.
