My daughter joined The Hun School last year, she enjoys almost everything there. The school's friendly environment is more like a community, a big family. There are many activities and games students can participate. Wonderful school!
Review The Hun School of Princeton
The Hun School of Princeton is a school that inspires vigorous learning, personal growth, and great relationships. When I arrived as a freshman I quickly fostered relationships with my teachers, classmates, and teammates. The incredible teachers at Hun have a unique and creative approach to teaching, which constantly challenges one to be an inquisitive, hardworking student. In the classroom, my learning is enhanced with the use of technology and I’m often learning from my peers through harkness table discussions. I have developed skills essential for debating, having an argument and backing it up with evidence. As well as expanding on my academics and excelling in sports, I am able to try new activities and sports. Last spring, I participated in Hun Crew for the first time and loved it. Hun is about getting involved. Hun allows each and every student to grow and flourish in a supportive community while preparing you for the future.
The Hun School's mission statement perfectly describes what is being ingrained in its students. We are taught to become leaders inside and outside of the classroom through a Harkness based learning method that creates an atmosphere where students freely speak their minds and learn how to intelligently discuss their opinions. Furthermore, I believe that one of Hun's most unique and important aspects is its diversity. There are students from all over the world who attend Hun and they help to bring a plethora of different perspectives that are emphasized throughout the school. While the coursework is challenging, students leave Hun with an ability to critically analyze any problem they encounter from any angle and are very well suited for the global and ever-changing world beyond.
