THE ALEXANDER SCHOOL SMALL SCHOOL.
 BIG RESULTS.
  The Alexander School is a premier private school offering a college preparatory curriculum in a small school setting.

 This co-educational program allows students with outside interests the time to pursue their activities without sacrificing academic excellence.
