  • Recommended July 03, 2013 - The atmosphere is focused on academic rigor without the intense pressure that usually goes along with it! Kids achieve at an elite level, the college list is full of the best schools and universities, but you never feel like you''re in a "factory. " Its a real intellectual community, with great sports, tons of arts and clubs and ways for kids to be involved, we love it! - Posted by Parent
