    I am a a student here at Knox, in my junior year. I first transferred here in the middle of my sophomore year. Truthfully, when my mother first told we were going to check out The Knox School, I was not at all happy about it. Mainly because I didn’t like the idea of going to a Private School, instead of a Public School. I agreed to go to one of their open houses to make her happy. When I left,I had a whole different opinion; I realized my public school wasn’t going to fully prepare me for high school. More importantly they made me feel at home. When we left the open house, I told my mother that I changed my mind, and that I would like to go to Knox. That’s why I really think attending Knox was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

    The Knox School is such a unique place! The diversity of students, the strength of the faculty, and opportunities that are available to students are endless. I am proud to work in such a special place.
    I graduated from Knox in the final year before it went co-ed. I have maintained close relationships with my former classmates throughout adulthood and. Currently serve as President if the Alumni Association.
    All 4 of my children attended Knox ( 3 as Day students and 1 as a Boarder ) classes of '97, '98, '00 and '16. They all went on to top colleges in persuit of their professional / career goals ( Mt. Holyoke college , Alfred University , Wheaton MA - x2)
    Knox opened the world up to each of us and provided an excellent academic foundation as well as encouraging and nourishing cultural understanding and relationships
