I have been attending Tower Hill School since kindergarten, and I am soon to be a graduating senior. Over the years, I have experienced a multitude of activities I would not have seen attending a different school and met a variety of people who made my school experience great. Traditions performed at Tower Hill have now become a part of my life, and friends have become family. However, I believe it is imperative for Tower Hill to work on the diversity and heir at and of the school. This is not to say Tower Hill isn't accepting of different cultures, as they can be. But with a more diverse and opening environment, I believe the Tower Hill school will be able to cater to not only those in the community but more people of the world.

Overall a more challenging school academically then the other private day schools in Delaware. Students are competitive but kind. Atmosphere is fair with a strong emphasis on students taking full responsibility for their academics, sports and creative endeavors. My son was at another private school in the area for K-8 and moved to THS in 9th grade. He has to work harder academically but he couldn't be happier. College prep starts in 8th and 9th grade. There are many clubs and opportunities for students to lead or try new things. Faculty is top notch. Most of my sons teachers have taught at the college level and some have PhD's. Great facilities for sports, drama and the sciences too.
Great education, engaged teachers and excelente facilities for sports and classes. Science labs with new new equipments including a telescope.
