Milton Hershey school is great for children who have a dream to go further than anyone that they are surrounded by. I am a MHS student and I couldn't love a place more. They teach you perseverance and responsibility.I pray that anyone who has a child who has bigger ambitions sends there child here
I am a former student of Milton Hershey School. I attended the school for nine years until i was terminated during the spring of my eighth grade year. The reason of my termination was because i was hospitalized in a Mental Hospital. I was hospitalized for self-injurying and suicidal idealation. The school did not give me a chance to get situated on medication. They instead kicked me out. I was then sent back home to a unstable household, which was one of the leading causes of my depression. This is a school who prides itself for helping children in need. But where were they when i needed help the most? They were filling out papers to get rid of me. After i got out of the hospital i attended therepy and was situated on medication. I then reapplied to the school who turned down my application. I attended that school for the majority of my life and they turned me down because of a mental illness. This school only cares about their outward appearence.
I attended MHS for five years and graduated in 2000. This school gave me opportunities that I would never have experienced if I stayed at home. The academics were challenging and the community was so supportive. The friendships that I developed will last a lifetime. I truly appreciate everything that MHS did for me; I don't think that I could have been as successful as I am without the school.
Milton Hershey is a very good school with a good academic currculum. The only thing I realy wish is that they would make it more accessible for parents who, like myself do not drive. This makes it very difficult to visit with your child or to even attend parent meetings.
This school is well worth all the dedication it takes to get a child in. I worked almost 2 years on getting my niece into school @ MHS and I am so very glad. She is happy and very well cared for there. It is a very nurturing environment and the programs offered are all top notch. You should be quite happy with this school.
My son attends 6th grade at Milton Hershey, I cannot voice enough good about the teachers and the staff there. Everyone works very well together. The school provides a great atmosphere for the students, a super education and a stable, controlled, structure that promotes success for the students. It is an excellent school! As with any school like this the rules are strict and the structure can be difficult to deal with at times but it is for the good of the student that it is this way and the support from the school and the house parents to work things through is phenomenal.
