Hopkins Academy

Meet the new students!

In Features, News on October 19, 2010 at 2:14 pm

Recently, I interviewed all the new students who came to Hopkins Academy this year. Among these new students, there were eight middle school students, four freshmen, three sophomores, two juniors, and two seniors, which is a grand total of 19 new students. Not all the new students are new to Hadley, though. Some of our new students are returning to Hopkins. To make the new students feel welcome and to get to know them, I asked each of them a few simple questions in a mini interview. Now, Hawk’s Claw readers, I would like you to meet:
