Academy of the Holy Cross is not that great of a school. The teachers teach the lessons too fast and expect students to ace the test and quizzes. The girls there are also very catty and rude. Not a great school.

This is a wonderful school...And in regards to the comment about this school being average in comparison to Stone Ridge, I completely disagree!
