What Lower School Students Want You to Know
We asked a few Lower School students what they love about Flint Hill and what advice they have for incoming students. They talked about what it's like to be a Husky and how they made new friends.
Why do you love Flint Hill?
"I really love this school because they help you a lot with your academics and they let you have a bit of freedom when learning. Also I love recess because of all the people that I can play with. And if you're alone, there's a Buddy Bench so you don't have to be alone! Someone comes to help you. And the academics are overall really fun."
"Usually in schools, like, boys and girls are separated, if you're a boy, you're usually friends with boys. But at Flint Hill, you're usually friends with girls and boys. And also, since the classes are smaller, teachers can give everyone more help.
What does it mean to be a Flint Hill Husky?
"It means to be kind and respectful and honest and help people when they need it."
"Being kind and respectful."
"Just to be kind. I feel like a lot of my friends, they really respect each other, and that's one thing I really hope to be."
What advice would you give to a new Husky?
"Don't be afraid to make friends and stuff because people will come to you. Or you can go to them and they'll be open to help you."
"At Flint Hill, the students are always very welcoming and always want to make new friends. So, like, when I came last year, on the first day I was sort of shy, but on the second day I made a bunch of new friends and a lot of people came up to me and stuff."
"I think just to be yourself, because a lot of times when new students come in, just a bunch of people come over and ask to like to play games. And I feel like new students just get a lot of attention for, like, the first week or so. So just be yourself."
"I would say, 'What's your name?' and 'Welcome to Flint Hill!'"
