Senior: This is the only school I've gone to, as is the case for most students here, so I can't answer relative to other schools very well. However, in my four years at this high school, I felt I was able to utilize the tools available. Many of my teachers became friends, creating a better atmosphere for learning because we, as a class, weren't afraid to speak our minds. Administration has gone through a lot of change in my years, but it seems this change is for the better. The activities and traditions allow for school spirit, and there is an array of after-school activities. I know I, personally, along with other students felt like we never even left the school after hours (and we didn't! But out of our own free will.) The school has an excellent drama club and sports teams. There are some downfalls, such as the lack of a library and poor technology resources, but considering the funding the school is provided, it's not a surprise.

Parent: Our son has been at The Haverford School for eleven years and is currently a sophomore in the upper school. Haverford has been a fantastic environment and investment. The faculty fully understand and embrace the nature of boys and learning and the educational experiences span the classrooms, sports fields, music hall and beyond. This past weekend our son had an off-site cross country meet and the turn out from the Haverford community included the Headmaster, teachers, parents and pets - a great, lasting community - Preparing Boys for Life!
