From my experiences at Lawrenceville, I have learned some of the biggest lessons in my life. Hellen Keller once said, “Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.” My past year at Lawrenceville has made me understand and experience this truth.
Dating back to 1887, competition between The Hill School and Lawrenceville is one of the oldest high school rivalries in U.S. history. The location of play changes annually, allowing each school's fan section to be larger and louder respective to where matches are being held.
As a returning sophomore I was ecstatic about my new history class: “Cultural Studies” had been my favorite class last year and I knew “Forces that Shaped the Modern World” would not disappoint. After all, the returning sophomores would have one year of Harkness discussion under their belt, while the new sophomores would bring thought-provoking ideas and questions to the table.
Through House and Harkness, Lawrenceville challenges a diverse community of promising young people to lead lives of learning, integrity, and high purpose. Our mission is to inspire the best in each to seek the best for all.
