I have two kids who went/are going through Edmund Burke School. One now at a selective top university, happy and well-prepared. We picked Burke because of the strong academics and the commitment to values as articulated in the school's mission. Have never seen an institution so committed to its mission. The school is extremely well run, and the mission guides every decision, including during COVID. This school is a gem and I could not endorse more highly.
