I love how challenging Hopkins is academically; it truly upholds its traditions. I would, however, like to see more improvement to the athletics part of Hopkins. Many schools around us, especially Choate Rosemary Hall, have strong athletic programs, while maintaining their academic standards. I believe we would be a more desirable school to attend, resulting in a stronger all-around school.

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 very academically focused, but also has strong arts and athletics programs. Students are incredibly driven and everyone likes learning. Teachers are so helpful and will never let a student fall behind. They all want you to succeed and will take time out of their busy schedules to help you. All students get extra help, so there is no stigma around it.
