Lifelong Learners and Active Global Citizens
New Hampton School is an independent, coeducational, college preparatory school for boarding and day students, grades 9 through 12 and postgraduate. Nestled in the foothills of New Hampshire's White Mountains and in the heart of the beautiful Lakes Region, yet just 90 minutes from Boston, Massachusetts, the 350-acre campus features six contemporary classroom buildings. On-campus housing includes 13 dormitories, varying in size, each with resident dorm parents/family and complementary dorm life programming activities throughout the year.
Sharing the whole world
Our school's mission is to cultivate lifelong learners who will serve as active global citizens. Core values focused on respect and responsibility provide an essential foundation, while our inclusive community immerses students in an on-campus network of diverse cultures and a worldwide network of alumni, families, and travel opportunities. By allowing classroom conversations to represent more points of view, expertise from outside sources, and intellectual links to coursework, we ensure students are introduced to a full range of insights. Ours is a conscious curriculum, built on an interconnected understanding of the world.
The student body includes representation from 28 states and 30 different countries. Twenty-five percent of students are international. New Hampton routinely sends students to top colleges and universities including Dartmouth College, University of Michigan, Princeton University, Cornell University, Williams College, Syracuse University, UCLA, and University of Chicago.
New Hampton School features a 1:1 iPad Program and is considered a leader in technology integration. Our school is an Apple Distinguished School since 2012; this distinguishing recognition is only given to those schools embracing a vision of "continuous innovation." Students are assured of vital connectivity, file sharing, video conferencing, organizational tools, interactive course materials and tests, and all of the latest innovations via Apple.
Our school is proud of programmatic variety including our strong athletic program, art offerings including Animation by the Walt Disney Family Museum, student leadership opportunities, clubs and activities. International Baccalaureate classes begin in eleventh grade and can be taken as part of the full Diploma Programme or as certificate courses. The IB philosophy pervades the curriculum, and ninth and tenth graders are prepared to embrace its challenges. Equally prominent is the school's commitment to the delivery of durable skills using relevant content with emphasis on experiential education, Habits of Mind, and career partnerships. The average class size is 11 and the breadth of academic offerings ranges from university rigor to support, from the IB Diploma Programme, honors courses, and independent study to tutorials and International Support classes that accommodate individual methods and pace of learning.
Weekend activities on and off campus include dances, dinner trips, shopping, hikes, concerts, day trips to Boston, and student-designed outings. The school's dining hall has been recognized for its outstanding cuisine.
