i've seen this school several times while touring, shadowing and going to the open house and I love It. I hope to go to this school next year.

I'm a student there. And it is AMAZING. The teachers are really fun, but hard... the application process is rigorous and selective, which means that the students there are both nice and smart, as opposed to other schools, where they might be less so... and the campus is BEAUTIFUL.

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.
