Flint Hill is a phenomenal learning environment. The teachers are experienced, knowledgeable, and innovative. The culture is welcoming and inclusive. The students are brilliant, and also kind. It is a community that focuses on the development of the "whole child." Their graduates are well prepared to excel in college and beyond.

Flint Hill has been a fabulous experience for my very different children. Rather than inundate students with ridiculous loads of busywork, the academics focus upon the pursuit of knowledge, teamwork, and building strong study and work habits. Classes take on a college prep feel as the students matriculate through high school. Flint Hill challenges the academic all-stars and the grade level students alike. Finally, the mutual respect between the teachers and the students creates a unique classroom environment in which the students engage in deeper debate and dialogue rather than merely checking off the list of items to be learned that day in class.

1100 students at this school. The high school is on a different campus, separate form the younger students. Classes are never more than 18 students. Great facilities. Warm, caring teachers. Very supportive environment. One unique thing that separates this school from all others is their differentiate learning. Private schools in this area tend to have a cookie cutter approach to learning and teaching so they can only admit kids who test very high in every single subject. Those are the easiest students to teach! Flint Hill will work with students who excel in math and need a fast pace but struggle in English and need a slower pace, or vice versa. Flint Hill is the most supportive of the academically accelerated private schools in the area and the most academic of the private 'supportive'' schools in the area. Having said that, Flint Hill is not a special needs school. Services at Flint Hill vary based on the developmental expectations of each division, resources available, the needs of individual students, and the recommendations of professionals. Graduates from each class go to a very wide variety of colleges. The top students in each class will gain admission to Ivy Leagues (Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Cornell, University of Pennsylvania, etc). Other graduates go on to UVA, William and Mary, Bucknell, Villanova, Lehigh, Elon, College of Charleston, etc... And other students who need more support will go to on to smaller colleges that offer the support that student needs to succeed. It all depends on each individual's ability combined with their work ethic.
