We have four children ranging from K through upper school--this is an amazing school and it has kept our family in Atlanta way longer than we ever expected when we first moved here ten years ago. I recommend the school without reservation. It is a unique school and community. Incredibly caring.

An incredible school in general, specializing in making real life relations with topics students learn, and also, as I was learning here, I felt truly immersed in the learning, in the sense of understanding.

As you’ve been doing your boarding school research, you’ve likely seen ISEE/SSAT score submission requirements for your target schools, and understand how important scores are to the admissions process. Unfortunately, tremendous candidates can get bypassed because they were not able to demonstrate what they knew on test day.

Schools for the artistically gifted child are in short supply.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
