To insure appropriate tone and content, we require each author to adhere to the following guidelines:

Be:

Honest
Thoughtful
Consider the review questions
Appropriate in tone; criticism is appropriate; bashing and ranting is not
Limit your review to only your experience
Well written with good spelling and punctuation

Avoid:

Personal Attack
Institutional Disparagement
Opinion presented at fact
Any false information
Using or disclosing your personal information

Examples of inappropriate comments include but are not limited to any writing that seems libelous, defamatory, indecent, vulgar or obscene, pornographic, sexually explicit or sexually suggestive, racially, culturally, or ethnically offensive, harmful, harassing, intimidating, threatening, hateful, objectionable, discriminatory, or abusive, or which may or may appear to impersonate anyone else.

AdmissionsQuest will not post any statement containing a threat of violence against a person or any other remark that would tend to be seen as intimidating or intends to harm someone. AdmissionsQuest maintains final editorial control over all submitted reviews. Reviews must evince appropriate tone and content.

History

Founded by celebrated 19th-century evangelist Dwight Lyman Moody as two institutions (Northfield Seminary for Young Ladies in 1879 and Mount Hermon School for Boys in 1881), the schools aimed to educate young people who had limited access to education. 132 years later, NMH offers academic excellence through an award-winning and engaged faculty, world-class resources, and careful attention to each student. These qualities ensure individualized support and instruction. However, the real value of an NMH education arises from our ability to prepare students for life by offering cultural and intellectual diversity; a dynamic and innovative curriculum; breadth of choice via afternoon minor courses, sports, arts, and clubs; and a place where students take on significant responsibility. Our commitment to preparing students for college and for life sets NMH apart.
