    My experience at Rumsey was amazing! Excellent teachers, students, sports, facilities, etc. The campus is beautiful in every season of the year. The classes are small so the students are able to get individualized attention and have close relationships with the teachers. Even though the school is in the middle of nowhere (which is also beautiful), the teachers always planned field trips, for example, our french teacher took us to Quebec City, our science teacher took us to the Hartford Science museum, our Lacrosse coach took us to a Yale vs. Dartmouth lacrosse game, our English teacher would teach classes in the woods. There are cool activities on Mondays of the Fall and Spring Terms, I took Archery and Grilling & Chilling (you just grilled meat and hang out). Our dorm parents were super nice and planned surprises for birthdays and took us in dorm trips during the weekends to dinner, movies, Target, etc. I was an international student only for 1 year but I made lifelong friendships.

    Our child's schedule-school, sports, tutors, homework and all the traveling around the city was so STRESSFUL. It was becoming impossible for him to reach his potential because he and we were exhausted. Enter The Rumsey Hall School in beautiful Washington, Connecticut, an easy hour and forty five minute drive from New York City. He thrived in the structure and supportive environment. Rumsey offers academic prowess, a talented faculty, state of the art facilities and sports programs. At his graduation two years ago, my mom commented that he had grown into an exceptional young man. I responded that I raised him with a team of child rearing professionals.
    Amazing School! The faculty is very involved and caring. Great sports and sportsmanship! Very personalized, and everyone is willing to help. Love it!
