Milton Hershey School Student Realizes Benefits of Enrollment Through Grandparents
By Caden Snyder, 7th grade
Milton Hershey School provides me with the tools I need to succeed. I did not understand this at first because of the distance between the school and my hometown of Eldersburg, Maryland. My grandparents, who are my guardians, first heard about the school from other patients at their chiropractic office. Then, they attended an MHS informational session where they met with admissions counselors to discuss what MHS is all about.
After I enrolled and started meeting friends, I learned the benefit of the school. MHS provides me with the structure that I need and opportunities I would not have at home.
I like the school and campus. Class sizes are small, which allows me to get to know my teachers and ask questions during class. My favorite subjects are English and science.
My houseparents make home life fun. I live in a student home with other male students from my division. We play football, watch movies, and work out in our weight room.
I am thankful for the opportunities that MHS has provided me and to my grandparents for encouraging me. I am now excited about my future and the ability to someday attend college to better my life.
Milton Hershey School is carefully following federal and state guidelines, CDC considerations, and MHS-established health and safety protocols to keep our campus a safe, nurturing, and healthy place. Any group photos of unmasked subjects were taken prior to the face coverings mandate.
