  • Recommended September 30, 2014 - Very happy with my experience in lower, middle and now upper school. Great academics and develops the full child. New Leadership initiative is a transformative program that reaches throughout school and faculty. My kids are thriving and feel like they will be so well prepared for life and fro college. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended April 09, 2012 - Academics are very poor, not a priority at all Good drama, some art, Emphasis is on athletics - giving scholarships (with tuition money) to students who rarely go to class. - Posted by Parent
