While it may be obvious, I wanted to highlight that people with negative comments are more likely to feel compelled to come post a comment here. Carey is a wonderful school with a great community.

Carey prides itself on turning out well-rounded learners. They are successful in doing so; however, as the grade levels climb one notices disproportionately more girls. Teaching style and curriculum is traditional although there is differentiated learning. Differentiated learning is not well-defined ...  Read more
