School Reviews

Tilton made all the difference in my life. My public high school was a good school and I was doing okay academically, but I knew I was missing something. After searching for the "right fit" boarding school, Tilton was the place that felt like home to me from the moment I set foot on campus. And I was not disappointed. Tilton''s teachers are inspiring and caring. They get to know you, not just as a student, but as a whole person. I can honestly say that going to Tilton was the best decision I have ever made! I was well prepared for college and for life. I wish everyone could experience a place as wonderful as Tilton School!
