Choate Rosemary Hall Reviews

There is so much to love about Choate. The faculty and administrators are deeply invested in educating well-rounded, world citizens who are prepared to enter any industry or academic discipline. From sports to Model UN to the performing arts, everyone has school pride!

My only critique is that the competitive nature of the school culture can be overwhelming for young students - but there are classmates, teachers, and academic or health counselors who are always ready to lend a helping hand.

Going to Choate was the best decision of my life. As a native Iowan, I was initially intimidated by the idea of abandoning my normal life to live part-time on the east coast. I wasn't sure if I was academically or socially matched to the elite kids that usually attend private boarding schools. Yet, it was not snobby or preppy at all. Although I wasn't as academically prepped by my middle school as other kids were, I caught up by the beginning of my freshman year. The workload was extremely strenuous, but I learned so much and left a much better student and person. The teachers are incredibly dedicated to helping you succeed, and the environment nurtures healthy friendships between students. The extracurriculars are more abundant than any other school I've ever seen. Overall, the commitment by both the faculty and students to learning changed my life.
My daughter is a day student. This did so much to open her mind to evaluating the world and appreciating different perspectives. The other student are serious and hard working, poised, and intelligent. When I go into other high schools and try to engage in conversations with non Choate students, I am always struck by how much the Choate students act and speak like adults. This place is also affordable. Don’t be fooled by the price tag. A place like this has a sizable endowment (and therefore a larger financial aid pool). Choate is in another league when compared to the other schools in CT. Other certainly look up at Choate - and this pays off in the college process. But don’t think this means spoiled brats and BMWs. This is a humble and thoughtful student body who greatly appreciate what they have.
