The Hill School tree stands tall on the highest point on campus. I always study it as we drive into school each morning because on some days we’ve seen eagles and hawks perched on the tall branches, surveying their domains. Today, the tree stood tall and proud against the bright blue autumn sky, most of its leaves now decorating the grassy field below. Those leaves in the shadows still showed a touch of frost on their edges, and it won’t be long before the green grass of the surrounding hay fields turns brown and dormant.
Each season brings a new perspective to the school’s natural surroundings, and The Hill School tree is a stately reminder that no matter which season we’re experiencing there’s always a beautiful view to be found.
