    My son has been at Tilton School for the past three years. We are from California and it was difficult to let him go to school 2500 miles away however, it was absolutely the best decision we could have made. The Tilton community of teachers, faculty, coaches and students have developed him into a confident young man who has sought out leadership roles. Tilton’s college counselors have prepared him for the next level and his hockey coach has prepared him to live out him dream of playing DIII hockey for a very highly regarded private college in Massachusetts. We cannot thank Tilton School enough and highly recommend this incredible school!

    My son is in his first year at Tilton. It was his first experience away from home on his own. He has settled in and is very happy. He loves his floor-mates in the dorm and has a good group of friends. I am most impressed with the teachers and how they make sure every student is doing their best. My son needs a push sometimes and they stay on top of him and make sure he does not slack off. They also come up with creative ways for him to learn - their teaching styles are not one size fits all. We are so happy with Tilton!
    I am the parent of multiple graduates. I sent all of them to Tilton because it has the right mix of academic intensity balanced with athletics and arts. The school culture has high standards, but it is not pretentious at all. The people at this school, the teachers, the students and the parents are authentic and they accept people for who they are. The admissions office and the college counseling offices are both excellent and we still support the school's annual fund even though our last student graduated last year.
