Our daughters were very fortunate to have attended the Dartmoor School. The 1:1 teaching environment enabled them to become academically successful while they were in high school and then graduate college in four years. One daughter is currently attending Law School and the other is applying to a graduate program.We are truly grateful to Jeff LaPoint for helping them both achieve their goals. He provided excellent and compassionate service. We would highly recommend the Dartmoor School!The Smith Family
