1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
while all schools brag about their community, Hun's is the real thing. As students, we worked really hard, but it never felt like a grind. Hun isn't an internally competitive place, but one where everyone gets along and supports each other.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
the whole experience was great.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
probably would have gotten more involved...I was nervous.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
My friends...the kids are great, and the teachers are easy to get to know.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
It was great ...highly recommend
1.) Describe the dorm life in your school - what did you like most about it?
dorms are relatively small and very personal. Plenty of weekend activities. No Saturday classes which is huge, both so you can rest, but also so you can do more on the weekends. Being in Princeton is fantastic...we go to games at the University, restaurants etc. in town. Easy walking distance to town.
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
Princeton is amazing...upscale restaurants and shops. Princeton university right in town so you can go to sports, music etc.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
Hun is very personal, and kids are relaxed. Not a hugely competitive or cliquey place. Kids are pretty comfortable with themselves and each other.

Several things make boarding school special. The learning, the community, the sports. All these and more.
A private school in its infancy is quite different from the mature community it becomes over time. I wonder what the founders of these five schools would think about them today. I bet they would be very proud of their creations.
Sending our children off to boarding school in the fall of 2020 raises questions about their safety and other corona virus issues. We address some of your concerns here.
