We are zoned for Vandegrift, which is a great school with much to offer, but my husband & I grew up in a smaller school environment. After much research we chose HP as it embraces a balanced student who can excel in academics, fine arts, athletics and other extracurricular programs. Balance is the key difference. Our 9th grade daughter loves HP, as do we and for moving to a school knowing no one, it has been an easy transition. She is maintaining a 4.0, playing sports throughout the year, family dinners together and in bed by 10, and she's happy! HP is surrounded by wonderful teachers, kids, administrators and families. This is a Christ- centered community and the energy at the school is amazing.
