The Hilltopper

Needham High School's Student Newspaper Since 1957

Homework and uneven floor numbers and waterfall schedules, oh my! There is no contesting that ninth grade at Needham High is difficult. On the first day of school, new ninth graders are confronted with a lobby full of culture shock, and down every hallway and up every staircase is a new worry for the next 180 days.

Hello Needham High Seniors! If college is potentially in your plans after high school, be sure to take note of the hundreds of college representatives coming to Needham High. Whether you aren’t able to visit a school in person, you’re still trying to find schools that you’re interested in, or you just want to learn more about specific schools, these visits are a great way to ask questions and get more information.
