About Us

Private School Review focuses exclusively on helping families learn about private schools, their benefits, and the application process. The site can be particularly helpful for families who are moving and need to evaluate several potential schools, or for parents who are exploring different pre-college educational options for their child.

Private School Review is a partner site of Boarding School Review, the leading online resource for evaluating private secondary boarding schools, and Public School Review, a unique resource for researching public schools across the USA. This network of sites aims to help families learn about and make the best pre-college educational choices for their children.

How the Site Works:

Schools directly update the information on our site at regular intervals, to help provide the most current data for families. Schools also respond to inquiries sent from our site, so that families can conveniently use our standardized forms to ask schools questions and receive free informational materials.

Our site aims to present its data, descriptions, and visuals in an impartial way that helps families gain a broader understanding of each school. Private School Review does not (and will not) offer an overall ranking of schools. We believe that there is no overall "best" school, as every student's needs and preferences are different. By making use of the information on our site, families will arrive at a more appropriate school choice than if they had relied on an overall ranking of schools.


To educate and energize families about private schools and the opportunities they offer. By providing information that is insightful and up-to-date, we help families make better educational choices. By making our research free, we invite all families into the school search process and help make private school as accessible as possible.
