Harpeth Hall students are academically driven

Through classes, clubs, and co-curriculars, students at Harpeth Hall push themselves to succeed. Read more from Harpeth Hall Ambassadors! 

Celia Brien, 11th grade

My name is Celia. I am a junior, and I entered Harpeth Hall as a 7th grader. This will be my fourth year on the varsity tennis team, and I consider these girls my family. The girls on the team are some of my best friends, and I talk to them every day even though we are spread out across grades. In school, I thrive in humanities studies. This year, I have taken AP World History, Global Contemporary Issues, AP English Language, and AP US History. My favorite aspect of Harpeth Hall is the opportunities we are given, including Winterim, SEEK, and Global Scholars.

My favorite class was World Cultures with Dr. Jacobs. Although the class was challenging, each day I looked forward to the discussions and learning something new. Dr. Jacobs has a way of making history interesting, and I love her for that.

At Harpeth Hall, I feel motivated to do well, because I want to succeed. I succeed because my teachers encourage me to ask questions and discuss thoughtfully.

 

Anna LeMarbre, 12th grade

My name is Anna, and I am a senior this year. I love Harpeth Hall for the student-teacher connection and the eagerness of anyone on campus, peer or staff, to help when someone reaches out or needs encouragement. I am involved in Act Now, our service club, as the treasurer, run track in the spring, and am part of the Global Scholars program.

My favorite class was Mr. Croker's English class last year. It gave me a sense for a higher level English class where students engage in debate and conversation with textually based support.

Every day, I am reminded of the larger impact and mission of Harpeth Hall through interaction with teachers and the way they see and value students as people first, who they many times take under their wing and mentor.
