Hutchison School Reviews

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.

The facilities at Hutchison School are so professional. The science labs are large, well equipped and full of resources. The girls work in a film studio and podcasting studio to create thoughtful, fun, meaningful content for their school online newspaper. The theater is top notch. Girls are designing lights and sound for the school productions. The gym spaces and new Wellness Center are state-of-the-art. My daughter is thriving here and learning so much. She told me on the way to school that she loves school and that it is so fun. She stated this at 7:15am!
The school provides strong academics and standards, excellent athletic facilities and teams, great fine arts programs, and a wonderful community. Chapel services are inclusive and have a variety of speakers who display different kinds of spiritual leadership--definitely not just the congregations represented on campus. Hutchison does a wonderful job balancing academic, social, and athletic/artistic lives of students. In my experience, this school has higher academic standards and less student stress than other comparable schools in town. There are multiple security guards on campus at any given time, and there's always a nurse on campus, and they know the students. Hutchison has issues in recruiting families who are not white, sometimes because (I think) people believe stereotypes.
