I have had an incredible experience at NMH so far because of the amazing teachers I have had. I see how hard they work inside and outside of the classroom to ensure I am getting the best education possible. Each of the teachers has impacted the way I learn and helped me to become a more well-rounded student.

For example, in the geometry class that I took my freshman spring, I really struggled in the beginning with picking up concepts. My teacher made sure to check in with me after class every day to see how I was doing as well as setting up extra-help sessions and finding peers who could help me. I was able to grasp concepts so much easier with his support, and it really showed just how much he cared about his students’ success.

He was not the only one of my teachers I was able to count on for extra support. Each of my teachers has shown me, through the attention they put into every class, how much they care about all of their students finding academic success.
Northfield Mount Hermon holds a special place in my heart. It was my top school when I was applying and for good reason. The arts program was stellar and so was everyone involved in it. I came here expecting to just be a singer and started to become entangled in everything else that goes on here on campus. Like joining an acappella group and becoming the leader of the group junior year, or going out to the Varsity Basketball game on Friday nights to support my best friend. Some of the relationships that you form here are everlasting.
