    I went to Hun over 30 years ago and still keep in touch with my friends many of whom have or have had their children there. It left an indelible mark on me in so many positive ways. The scope of the education is quite wide. Hun offers fabulous liberal arts great math/science clubs and sports. I went into engineering after Hun and although I struggled with the challenging liberal arts at Hun the education i got in them still aides me greatly.

    The school produces and maintains high achieving students in academics the arts and athletics who are happy sincere and and most importantly nice kids. Teachers are available for after school help with academics every day which is worth the price of admission. College counseling services are some of the best in the country and help the students find the right fit for their talent and abilities. Students are kind confident and self motivated and two were chosen last year for Peter Thiel's 20 under 20 the only two high school age students chosen for this award in the country. Fabulous Academic Dean and Headmaster. I sent three kids there and it changed their lives for the better.

    My daughter transferred from a public school to Hun. She often says 'I feel so lucky to attend this school.' Although her public school was academically strong she wasn't as comfortable and happy. She awakes at 5 30 everyday and has never once complained. She is excited to attend school everyday. I think that is a testament to her hard-working teachers and friendly caring classmates.

    I love the school. There is simply no other way to speak about the school. Hun provides an amazing experience because it is so small and because it has so much pride inside. Hun is full of kids who love it whether or not their a varisty oathlete or in the next school play. One thing great about the school is that Varisty athletes also do the plays and aren't ashamed but encouraged by there fellow students teachers and coaches to do so. I have never attended a school like this before. Being around such diveristy is a great experience especially for boardrs. The Hun School truly changed my life.

    Although not a parent at Hun I teach there - and would like to add obsevations from that direction. The Hun School challenges its teachers as well as students. It provides a wonderful atmosphere to learn for everyone. It also competes at the highest levels in all of its athletics and combines that with a tremendous arts program. I have worked at four other schools throughout the country but none of them compare to the personalized attention and feeling of community that one gets from The Hun School of Princeton!

    Having sent both our sons there the best way I can sum it up was when my son said' It is cool to be smart here and still play varsity athletics' In a word they care!

    I graduated from Hun and it was the best experience for me. You meet students from all over the world and experience different cultures. The teachers all work with you and are excellent. There are numerous sports to choose from for example soccer basketball football wrestling ice hockey fencing cross country track etc. I think out of the 3 years I only had one teacher that I didn't like. I started out at public school and I hated it. The teachers at public school never helped me and I was only a number in a big class HUN everyone helps you learn and it's a wonderful experience. I am still in touch with friends and The Hun School. I highly recommend this School.
