From Northfield Mount Hermon School

Northfield Mount Hermon (NMH) is a coed, independent boarding school of 655 students in grades 9–12 plus a postgraduate year, located in the heart of New England, on the banks of the Connecticut River in western Massachusetts.
Supported and guided by expert faculty and staff, students are encouraged to pursue their passions, discover new ones, and make their own unique contributions to the NMH community. Our “Partnership of 12” initiative is a network of adults who support each student every day: we focus on the whole student.

Our faculty devote an extraordinary amount of time and energy to fostering students’ accomplishment and success, both in and out of the classroom. The result is students who think critically, act with humanity, and discover within themselves a sense of purpose.

Classes are 80-minute class periods, allowing students to explore each subject in greater depth and spend more time with their teachers.

    My experience was wonderful! I learned so much about myself and really grew as a person. I left feeling incredibly prepared for college. I was involved in the arts, sports, academics, community service, etc. they really allow you to be apart of everything you love. The teachers are kind and spend time getting to know you on a personal level. There are endless resources available. The campus is so beautiful and well kept and the food is some of the best I’ve ever had. I would trade my experience for the world.

    Really great school! The campus is very beautiful in western Massachusetts. Northfield Mount Hermon school has a wide variety of sports, arts and clubs. All the faculty and students are really great!
    The campus is beautiful and spacious. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. The students interact and get along so well. There are many programs and classes that help enrich each student during their four years. This school has delicious food in the dinning hall, best food I've ever tasted in a high school. I purposely make sure my visits to my son are during meal times!
