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.

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
