School Reviews

An excellent school and dollar for dollar the best private school value in the region, based on comparative college entrance scores (ACT, SAT), AP classes and scores, sports, merit scholarships, and college acceptance. In addition to being a terrific academic community, the school hold students accountable for their personal choices and develops a moral compass. I have two children attending and they have grown into independent thinkers because of their excellent faculty, and the expectations that have been put upon them to grow academically, physically, and morally.
