At Hilton Head Prep, leading the way in education means more than just consistently being ranked among the best private schools in the state. While they have certainly achieved that time and again, the school looks at leadership as not just something to achieve, but something to teach. And it starts with the students. The school’s “Pooh Pals” program represents leadership in its purest form, pairing up one kindergartener or first grader with an upper school senior who will serve as a mentor. More than just a tutor, these seniors help guide their Pooh Pal’s career at Hilton Head Prep, joining them at pep rallies, dressing alike at Halloween and forging the bonds of community that define the school. From the classroom to the field and after school, these students learn the value of character and leadership, while further uniting a tight-knit community that leads the way in education.
