Stonehill was a very positive experience for me. I appreciate that teachers were very patient with me and helped me with my transition from my junior to senior year. I have also noticed how the atmosphere at Stonehill is full of positive energy and enthusiasm. Students and teachers are always full of life, purpose, and willingness to succeed, which has helped me become the same.
I was never much of a sports person before I came to Stonehill, but the structure of ISACI really gave me an opportunity to try out new sports and build on my communication skills. I started off with being mostly a sub player in basketball; after sticking to it and putting in hard work, I ended my ISACI journey with being Captain of the girls volleyball team.
Stonehill has an amazing culture, great teachers and fun study sessions at boarding.
Stonehill was an all-round great experience. I especially enjoyed the opportunities provided by Trips Week.
My experience at Stonehill was great. I found that I always had support, I just had to ask. My teachers were always available to take questions, and I could always consult my college counsellor. When I was going through the college application process, this was especially helpful as I could efficiently communicate with all my teachers.
The Stonehill experience was unique, enlightening, and fun. More than academics, Stonehill has prepared me with handling the student-teacher dynamic necessary at college. Working with teachers, asking for their help when necessary, and being transparent with progress and deadlines are all the skills that will be helpful at college.
Stonehill was like a family. I enjoyed coming to school and knowing that the Principal would greet us every morning when got off the bus. My greatest memory was volunteering at the Government School with 3 of my other classmates. It taught me that even the smallest contribution to the community can have a large effect. I am so grateful to have attended Stonehill. The support from my teachers, peers and parents was incredible and wouldn’t have gotten me where I am now.
My experience at Stonehill gave me a unique opportunity to grow as both a student and an individual. The community was super nice and welcoming and made the transition from one place to another much easier than anticipated. Stonehill allowed me to gain new internationally-minded perspectives and develop as both a person and as a student. The focus on individual learning allowed me to develop time management skills and study habits that will easily translate to university.
I loved Stonehill’s open environment for learning. I believe this is one of the main reasons why I’ve developed amazing relationships with all of my teachers, over the course of my 4 years at Stonehill. I also made incredible friends. As I look back, my Stonehill experience exceeded all of my high school expectations.
I believe Stonehill has prepared me for university with its forward-thinking attitude. I also think attending a new school in a foreign country for the first time, has prepared me for the experience I will need when I attend university. The DP trip was one thing I will never forget. During the trip, I was really able to bond and strengthen my friendships.
I have many good memories of Stonehill. I have vivid memories of the supportive and passionate teachers. They valued the cultivation of student-teacher relationships which allowed me to build strong relationships with my university professors. I hope this carries over with my colleagues and bosses at work.
Another beautiful memory is related to the extensive sports programme at Stonehill. It brought students from different year groups and schools together. It was always an exciting experience due to the team spirit that surrounded it. Last but not the least, Stonehill encouraged us to engage in meaningful community service at the Stonehill Government School, after school hours. This is another value that I have held close to my heart. It is because of this that I am now a volunteer at the Italian Red Cross. I thank Stonehill for the important role it has played in my development.
I am grateful for the important things I learnt at Stonehill like managing my time with assignments. My teachers, especially Ms.Manpreet, supported me throughout my learning and this has made me a better student at university. Ms.Praseeja helped me with my resume and encouraged me throughout my application process.
My boarding experience at Stonehill taught me to be independent and this has benefitted my day-to-day life as a student, living far away from home. I am thankful to my House Parents for creating a loving and caring environment which has helped me adjust to different people from all over the world.
