Unlike most schools in the St. Louis area, The Freedom school really is diverse (in terms of both race and economic background). The teachers are passionate about what they do, and Tim Baker, the head of the school is very accessible and up-beat. I feel my son gets a good quality education there, and we look forward to the Pinewood Derby every year!

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.

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.
