“I think the freedom we are given as 8th graders and Middle Schoolers at Poly makes it a good experience for us,” said Hank Schilling ’24. “In 7th and 8th grades we can leave lunch early to do work or relax before classes. We have many periods to do free work throughout the day. Poly understands how sports and academics are equally important in students’ lives. We get an hour of PE almost every day and have a wide array of sports to choose from and many teams to join both in Middle School and Upper. There are facilities and fields for almost every sport you can think of. Poly prepares us well for what’s ahead. They tell us what will be required in future years, both in Upper School and college.”
