Hockaday may give you loads of homework, but the things you take away from it towards the end are priceless. They have a boarding program, and great boarding facilities. They are redoing them this year, because it is the centennial year of the school. Hockaday is great. Because of the centennial year, ...  Read more

I have been going to Hockaday since Pre-K. Teachers and fellow classmates provide a supporting academical environment with excellent science and art programs.

So stressful it will make you cry, puke, and pull your hair out. Recent studies reported astonishingly high levels of clinical depression in students.

They are constantly ...  Read more

It is too much stress. Really think about whether you want to spend 25,000 dollars a year to go here. Half the buildings are tiny and the kids are just rich and snobby. Desperate for diversity, but there are so many cliques and it is hard to be accepted if you are new. The academics are challenging, ...  Read more

I attended Hockaday for 5 years as a boarder. I was very involved in the music program at Hockaday. Now that I think about it, my experience at Hockaday was wonderful. I didn't realize it until much later that I am much better at time management and prioritizing than other people. Even though I did not ...  Read more
