The Hill School
The Hill School is a coeducational preparatory boarding school located on a 200-acre campus. In Pottstown, about 35 mi northwest of Philadelphia; the Hill is part of the Ten Schools Admission Organization. The school is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Elementary and Secondary Schools; the Hill School was founded in 1851 by the Rev. Matthew Meigs as the Family Boarding School for Boys and Young Men. However, it has been known as the Hill School since at least 1874; the school opened on May 1851, enrolling 25 boys for the first year. According to Paul Chancellor's The History of The Hill School: 1851-1976, “He wanted to stress that he was not founding still another academy, but a type of school quite new and rare in America. There is a tendency to think that the boys’ boarding school as we know it existed as long as there have been private schools, it has not.... The Hill was the first to be founded as a "family boarding school", as opposed to boarding with families in the town.
In 1998, the school became coeducational. Each grade at The Hill is known as a form, consistent with the English schooling term. Ninth grade is called third form, tenth grade is called fourth form, so forth; the school's academic year is divided into trimesters. The Hill maintains a formal academic dress code that requires boys to wear a coat and tie and conservative trousers and girls to wear a blazer and appropriate collared dress shirt with trousers or skirt, or a conservative dress during the school day and for special events and activities. Casual academic dress and casual dress codes apply at other times. Two required nondenominational chapel services are held during the school week. Voluntary worship services are offered each weekend during the school year. In the early 20th century, The Hill was a feeder school for Princeton University; the prevalence of Hill alumni, as well as those of Lawrenceville, Hotchkiss and Phillips Academy at Princeton led F. Scott Fitzgerald to lament that it was those of'lesser' preparatory schools which were more prepared for the fray.
The admissions process was relaxed for Hill School students, with cases including George Garrett, Princeton 1952, admitted when he confessed that he liked the striped football uniforms. At one point and Hill sent more students to Princeton than all public schools combined Today, Hill alumni attend a wide variety of colleges; the Hill School offers classes in each of its nine academic departments and offers 28 Advanced Placement courses. The Hill offers classes in Chinese, Spanish, Arabic and Ancient Greek; the Hill School has had a relationship with Charterhouse School in the United Kingdom since 1994 that includes instructional trips, along with exchanges of extracurricular programs and teachers. It is linked with the Maru a Pula School in Botswana; as well, the Hill hosts a Thai King's Scholar every year. The Hill School is a participating school in the Naval Academy Foundation Prep Program. In the early days of the school, boys played shinney, town ball and cricket. Matthew Meigs was not an athlete, yet allowed sporting pursuits, unlike his contemporaries such as Samuel Taylor of Phillips Academy.
During John Meigs' tenure as headmaster and interscholastic sports began at The Hill. Tennis became the dominant sport unlike baseball at other schools; the Hill is a member of the Mid-Atlantic Prep League, which the School joined in 1998. The Hill was a charter member of the Pennsylvania Independent Schools Athletic Association, which became an sanctioned organization in 2011. In 2014, The Hill received associate membership in the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council; the Hill's rivalry with Lawrenceville dates back to 1887, is the fifth-oldest high school rivalry in the United States. An annual football game, the schools now compete against each other in all of the fall sports on either the first or second weekend in November. Peddie School maintains a "Hill Day" during which several teams from Hill and Peddie compete. Participation in athletics is considered a key part of a Hill education. All third and fourth form students are required to participate in at least two seasons of interscholastic sports, all fifth and sixth formers must play at least one interscholastic season.
Students may fulfill a season requirement by serving as team manager. The Hill has been described as different in style and spirit from its counterparts in New England, has been described as strict and demanding, it has been described as conservative. Alumnus Oliver Stone described his experience at The Hill: "I hated the Hill School at the time, it was monastic. Horrible food, no girls, it was one of those Charles Dickens’ types of experiences.. And I hated it. Years I came to appreciate it. I think the inquiry and above all the discipline, of studying and concentrating and sitting down and doing it." The Hill has been criticized, alongside other East Coast Protestant schools, for promoting "snobbish", "un-American values". E. Digby Baltzell's book The Protestant Establishment identified Hill as one of the "select sixteen" best boarding schools in the United States. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, two of the 21 richest Nouveau riche families sent their sons to The Hill; the school was used as a filming location in the 2009 movie The Mighty Macs.
