My teenager started High School here this year. After looking at many schools we decided to try this small school in the Blue Ash area. I have been very happy with the courses and teachers. Each teacher really invests their time in the students. The other students are extremely welcoming and friendly, so my teen didn't feel left out or excluded in any way. They are able to adjust the classes to meet the students interests. The school teaches the students critical thinking skills and they do projects for the community. They offer everything from fencing, chess and drama to top AP courses

My son moved to Schilling for high school from a rigorous private school where he never felt understood despite his high IQ. Now, he is a different child. He loves school again and thrives under the exceptionally qualified and caring teachers and staff. They go above and beyond the call of duty to challenge my son in his areas of strength and to help him overcome his areas of weakness. At Schilling, he is completing college level courses easily and loving every minute of it! His ninth grade Biology book was exactly the same as the one my older son used in college, so I know he will not only be prepared for college but will excel there. The school administration deals fairly and efficiently with any problems that arise in a way that teaches the kids to solve or avoid future issues. The personal attention that is given to both the students and parents is extraordinary. We are so glad we moved to Schilling and recommend it highly!
