    As an alum from the 1990s, I can testify to a longstanding emphasis on academics and social engagement . Athletics and fitness are viewed as means to an end—and that end is healthy scholars. Hopkins requires discipline, intelligence, and a robust social support system; it is *challenging*. But teachers and administrators are accessible, and there's something for everyone at Hopkins.

    It prepared me so well for college, that academic excellence was not something I worried about at Yale. Graduates of many other prep schools struggled mightily.

    If you have a bright and ambitious child, and can commit to helping them with transportation and emotional assistance while they grind 16-17 hours per day on academics, athletics, and homework, then, as a parent, you simply cannot do better than Hopkins. The experiences and connections one makes there will last a lifetime.
    I have been fortunate to have two children attend Hopkins School. Both have very different passions in the classroom and both are very different learners. I've been thrilled with Hopkins and the schools ability to teach to a range of students in the classroom. Both of my children have thrived on the Hilltop. My son graduated two years ago and attends a highly selective college in New England. My daughter is currently in the 11th grade loving history, English, and art. I highly recommend Hopkins for motivated students who love to learn.
