    THE HILLTOP

    Athletics and academics. I was a hockey player and was looking for a school that would provide me with a good program, as well as strong athletics. I no longer play hockey because I didn't enjoy it anymore, but I have found myself still loving the school.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I believe that our school has a stand-up reputation for being difficult. I think that because we are not an ivy or Nescac the standards could be lowered, because many students do not achieve the GPA that they desire.
