On a beautiful Sunday afternoon in early June, 69 young students graduated from Eagle Hill School.

Before the final procession out of the gymnasium, each student watched a video that was customized to their own journey through their time at Eagle Hill. In preparation for this day, every student was asked to select a favorite teacher or advisor to provide a voice-over while a compilation of photos showed them at all stages in their school life.

The students themselves pre-recorded a short perspective on how Eagle Hill changed their lives.

The videos were touching, humorous, and heartfelt, the school said.

The parents were “overjoyed with this example of how, even on the last day at this unique school, their students were seen as individuals with specific strengths and skills to be honored and celebrated.”

Eagle Hill School helps boys and girls ages six to 16 with language-based learning disabilities acquire the academic and social skills necessary for transition to a traditional learning environment.

According to the school, a low student-to-teacher ratio ensures that each child receives an intensive, personalized education.
