I absolutely loved my time at Stoneleigh; the caring, nurturing environment combined with rigorous coursework and challenging extracurriculars prepared me for college, graduate school, career, and maintaining a self-care personal life of riding and sports!

Great academics with very small class sizes and lots of teacher support and interaction. IB curriculum is very intense, but extra attention means that most girls excel. Caring, inclusive community.
