Massey Hill Classical was one of the best schools in the county that I could've gone to. Being smaller than other schools means that you really get to know everyone in school and connect better with your teachers. Although there weren't any sports, there were many fun after-school clubs and activities. I would recommend Massey to anyone looking for a great high school experience.

I loved my time at Massey Hill. They have been the most formative four years of my life for sure. The teachers and staff at this school will do such great things for you and your family should you decide to send your child to this school. They are ranked first in Cumb. Co. for several reasons. In my time at Massey Hill, I grew as a leader, grew so much more than I could imagine as a musician, and even learned enough Spanish to pass a fluency exam, when I didn't speak a word four years ago. You will have no regrets if you come to this school.
Massey Hill is a school of choice school in Cumberland County. This is a classical school and it helped me to prepare well for college. I developed great study habits, time management skills, and the teacher's are wonderful!
