Caveat emptor. It would be wise to pay attention to each and every review listed here. Private HSs are too expensive (especially NHS) to make a bad choice.

I graduated from New Hampton in 2010 and am now in my second year at a small liberal arts university. I would not trade my experiences at New Hampton for anything! There are often times now when I wish I could go back and do it all over again. The community environment at NHS is truly amazing. Faculty,
... Read more staff and students alike are friendly and supportive. New Hampton community members care about your success, not only in the classroom, but in the dorm, on the fields, and on the stage. At New Hampton, you are given the opportunities and tools to excel. New Hampton will forever hold a special place in my heart. It is not only a great school, but fosters unbelievable friendships. A little over a year since I graduated, I still crave the opportunity to go back and visit campus. I would recommend New Hampton to any high school student looking for something more personal, because New Hampton is not simply a school, it is a community. Read less

I am an alum from the class of 2010 and I cannot say enough good things about New Hampton. I am in my second year of college at a really fun university, but I still wish I could go back to high school to be a member of the little community I grew to love and be a part of. Everything about New Hampton

New Hampton is a place where you can see your teachers in the classroom, on the soccer field and in the dining hall so you get to know them on a personal level, not just as the person who assigns you homework. There are so many food and activity options and the school spirit was great when I was there and from what I hear is getting even stronger. On my breaks from college, I go home and visit the school. It is a place I love and I work to keep in touch with it. Read less

I am a parent of a sophomore (2nd year) at New Hampton. I am a trustee at another independent boarding school as well as a trustee at an Ivy league college. New Hampton is an excellent educational institution - even better than I anticipated. Anything that you read from before 2009 should be disregarded.
... Read more The leadership team (led by Andrew Menke) and the faculty have created a holistic learning environment that is both challenging and nurturing. The International Baccalaureate program offers a unique opportunity for those who chose it but also allows other students to stretch in areas of interest. The school community is upbeat and optimistic. They have a great sports program for those who are interested but also a very nice recreational program for whom athletics is neither a strength or a focus. I get frequent and helpful updates from the dorm head and advisor. Teacher comments are extensive and to the point. If you want to get a great education with lots of individual attention at a school without an elitist attitude, New Hampton is the place for you. Visit it and I bet you will be favorably impressed.

My son is at New Hampton currently and loves the School. No one has left because they hate it. The prior review is not accurate and probably from a disgruntled student who was expelled. Come see the New Hampton School and you will see a very happy group of students.

Ignore the negative reviews posted in 2007. They are submitted by a few disgruntled parents and teachers that are no longer affiliated with the school. The new change in leadership with Dr Andrew Menke has brought a much needed mission to the school. He has brought a renewed sense of pride, a campaign

The one thing that separates New Hampton from most all the other boarding schools in the region is the people. They genuinely care about the students. There is no pretension here as you see in some of the old New England boarding schools. The advisors/teachers consistently communicate with parents. Read less

These reviews are very disturbing. I am a current student at New Hampton and it is a great school. If you are no longer here then you do not know what happens in the dorms and on campus.

heartbreaking, absolutely heartbreaking. As a member of the graduating class, i have been a student of NHS for four years, and played a part in its many programs for over a decade.

Upon my admission to the school four years ago, all of the students and faculty were on a first-name basis with one-another, and were comfortable talking about their personal lives freely.now most of the students fear the staff in a manner similar to that of a secret police. what good attributes remain are only there as a facade for the new administration, or because they have not yet snuffed them out. avoid NHS at all costs, it is not the school it says it is.
