At a recently basketball game, I was shocked to hear the inappropriate (and abusive) comments being said by Tilton players and their parents. This is not good sportsmanship or acceptable behavior. This is only a reflection of what goes on in the Tilton school community.
I just recently observed boys from Tilton School yelling out of a bus extremely disrespectful comments to a female. What shocked me the most was that the adult on the bus did not try to stop them. If this is how these students behave off campus, I could not image how they are on campus. Obviously, the staff are not doing their jobs of teaching these teenagers how to become respectful, responsible citizens.
I went to a summer program run by this school many years ago. I was shocked and deeply hurt when I was bullied- not by students (at least, not more than usual), but by teachers. I'm sad to see the other reviews indicate that whatever warped administrative culture allowed that to happen to me has survived.
I have to say as a parent of a student, I am disappointed and shocked at how the administration handled student issues and discipline. Tilton does offer a good education but private school should be much than that. It is about building a community and helping teenagers learn how to be responsible and respectful citizens. When administration, behind closed doors, makes a decision based on political reasons, the message is clear that money can buy you anything. Is that a community? Or, is it teaching students how to become politicians?
The 4 years as a boarding student were the best 4 years of my life. I met people from all over the world, learned many life lessons, became successful, and so many more reasons to attend this school. I was one of many in my family that graduated from Tilton. It was my home and difficult to leave but I always make sure to return. The campus remains beautiful and holds many good memories.
