    Hutchison School Reviews

    Hutchison is an outstanding, one-of-a-kind school for girls. All grades are one beautiful campus in East Memphis. The secure perimeter allows girls to move freely about the school's farm, playing fields, lake and buildings in a safe environment. But, what makes this place truly special are the teachers and programs. Teachers at Hutchison aim to help each girl discover her own unique gifts and talents which she can explore and build on through opportunities in fine arts (Hutch girls win more art awards than almost any other school in TN), robotics, athletics, academics, etc. Curriculum is robust, challenging and presented in a way that stimulates thinking and the formation of cross-curricular connections. My daughter spent 15 years at Hutchison, was awarded a coveted scholarship at a prestigious college and now attends and is thriving at an Ivy League University.

    I have seen the benefits of this amazing school in my daughter. She is so much more confident, loves school, and feels like part of a tight community. She is thriving academically because she feels like her teachers believe in her. She has had a diverse group of friends over to the house, and I have been impressed with all of them. We were New last year, and I will admit I believed the stereotypes and toured reluctantly. I am so glad we did! This is an amazing school and I am so glad we made the move. My daughter is happy, involved, and loves to learn. Grateful for this school.
    I cannot say enough nice things about this amazing college prep school! We started in Pre-K and graduated from Hutchison. My daughter is a freshman in college and is SO prepared! She is PreMedicine with 2 minors. She is not only fluent in Spanish, with a 100 average in her upper level Spanish class, but she has 100 average in her Calculus, Chemistry, and A+ in Bio. This is also a well rounded student in many clubs in college, both academic and social. Other students in her classes are struggling, but because of her strong academic background, she is not. She is about to add her favorite sport to her activities since she misses it so much from playing at Hutchison. She loved playing many sports at Hutchison and loved her coaches! The school is also very inclusive of all students. I don't think you can find a better all girls school! It is truly a very special place that will always be dear to us! We loved her talented teachers and the chef so much! We already miss them all!
