At Tilton School, our goal to ignite a lifelong passion for learning within our students is supported by Grade Level Programming. Grade Level Programming brings teams of faculty together with students to solve problems, think deeply and work together to navigate their world. Each grade level culminates with a significant performance moment in which students demonstrate the skills and knowledge that they have mastered during the course of the year.
Here at Tilton School, we encourage students to take on leadership roles, and if they see a need for a certain organization on campus, to take the reins and fill that opening. Last year, international student Ziqi (Jacky) Li ‘19 (Guangzhou, China) developed the International Student Support Association (ISSA) with the help of his friend Xiaofeng (Jessica) Zhu ‘20 (Hangzhou, China). ISSA is a student-run support group on campus that focuses on helping international students acclimate to American boarding school culture. Jacky saw a need for this on campus when a previous support group was left without an advocate.
With the first day of Spring fast approaching, we are preparing for the last sprint of the school year culminating with final exams and graduation. Warm weather will soon be here and time seems to fly by in the last few months of the school year. If you are a parent to a graduating senior, you will likely be thinking about a graduation party.
On Monday, March 4th, the Tilton School community commemorated the end of winter sports. At our Winter Athletic Awards, students and faculty gathered to honor coaches, teams and athletes for their hard work, dedication and sportsmanship throughout the season.
In a breathtaking display of determination, endurance, and teamwork, Tilton Boys’ Varsity A Hockey were crowned New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) Champions this past weekend. The team defeated Holderness School 5-2 in the NEPSAC Piatelli/Simmons Small School Championship, held at St. Anselm College’s Sullivan Ice Arena. Led by Head Coach Brooks McQuade ‘04 and Assistant Coach Sean Doherty, this is the first time since 2002 that the team has brought a title to the Hill.
The Tilton School Summer Institute (TSSI) is a program unlike any other. From July 7-27, 2019 students ages 11-14 can be immersed in a unique summer experience. During three weeks spent on campus, students will be encouraged to build connections, try new things, explore passions, and form relationships while developing essential skills of work practice and study habits.
