My name is Celia. I am a sophomore and this is my fourth year at Harpeth Hall. This will be my third 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 am taking AP World History and Global Contemporary Issues. 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.
My name is Anna, and I am a junior 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.
I'm Gracie, and I am a senior at Harpeth Hall! I have attended the school since 7th grade, and I have been an Ambassador for four years. I am on the Mock Trial team and a part of the Women in Government and Hygge clubs. I also work on the staff of our school newspaper, "Logos." My favorite subjects are History and English. Outside of class, I enjoy going to Nashville Predators Hockey games and concerts around town.
My favorite class has been Creative Writing both because of its amazing teacher, Mr. Chappell, someone I greatly admire and enjoy being around, and because the course allowed me to use the writing skills our English classes provided us with to think in a uniquely new and creative way.
My most memorable project was a "Frankenstein" creative project in AP English Language last year. We were given many fun ways to display our impressions of the novel including creating a playlist to fit scenes in the novel, constructing a map to accompany the characters' journeys, or writing a passage from a unique prospective, which I chose to do and LOVED!
