Now, as I reflect on my education at Packer, and my current school, as I am preparing to apply to high schools now, I will say packer was an amazing experience and will be a great choice for many children.

Unfortunately, I think the school can be more 'academic' - the math and language arts/reading program need to be more rigorous. Other than that the school is very 'in-tune' with the children ...  Read more

It's a fine school I guess. In terms of academics, I get the feeling that they think that just because they're a private school, they don't need to keep the education level up. The music, arts, and sports programs are great. Parents do get involved, but for the wrong reasons. The biggest problem is the ...  Read more
