The school itself is a wonderful environment overall. Yes they have their ups and downs but who don’t? The sisterhood that girls have is amazing! Most of the teacher actually care about the students. Most of the teachers have a connection with each child. Yes there are things they could work on like communication, extra curricular activities for Upper school, allowing students to advocate for themselves, and more teacher involvement in high school.

This school is phenomenal! They do not take being a girl lightly! They empowered us DAILY and always pushed us to be our best in our work, at home, in school activities, EVERYWHERE! They have an AMAZING college advisor name Paula Dofat! I hope she still works there because SHE DOES NOT PLAY! Your daughter WILL be going to a college or program or an internship, they WILL be doing something after High School and she and all the college advisors there are so serious about that! Choose this school! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!

Not all what it seems to be, or what they tell you it is. They have great sports and events. Academiclly the school is great, they offer great opportunities for gifted and advanced. Overall the school mainly focus on students in athletics more than others. If you arnt in athletics then you arnt reconized much at all. Communication is terrible, horrible organization and most of the money is spent on other things instead of whats needed.
