If you are looking at the top private schools in the city this will likely be your child's first choice when they come home from their interview. Well balanced curriculum, challenging academically, very high participation rate in their ...  Read more

Many students seem to think the school is an alternative school vs. a preparatory school. Many students choose to do the work while others are the typical 'I could care less' high school student. Sports program is excellent. The visual arts program receives high marks. As for parental involvement ...  Read more

My daughter went to this school for high school. It is an academically rigorous program with interactive, personal relationships between students and teachers. There is tremendous support for students from the faculty. When my student struggled with depression in tenth grade, all her teachers were ...  Read more
