1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
The teachers were very helpful in assisting and facilitating learning in the classroom. The campus was small and the school community was comfortable and tranquil. There was the opportunity to get to know every one on campus and form close bonds. The sports teams were fun and competitive. I received very helpful assistance from staff in searching and getting accepted to college.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
My experience there allowed me to meet people from around the world and get to know a different region of the country. I still have friends I talk to from my days in Hebron.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
Meet everyone and get involved in all the activities and social events. Definitely participate in sports or other groups! Stay focused on the studies.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
It was a awesome place to spent my last year's of high school and the friendships I formed was the most rewarding aspect for me!
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
I'd say it's important to try out everything the school has to offer and go out on the field trips and attend other school functions.
1.) Describe the academics at your school - what did you like most about it?
There were great teachers that provided insight and class discussion. The coursework helped me to prepare for college level classes. The school set up a balanced daily schedule including study time that mirrors what is needed to succeed in the college environment.
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
There was Oxford hills ten miles away for movies. Then there was trips to Portland every weekend to check out old town. Sometimes we would go to Boston. Hebron was basically just the school campus.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
It was rewarding to get to know everyone at school, since it was a small campus. Lots of time to socialize and get quality time together.
