Overall, I would rate Choate 4 out of 5 stars just because Choate is still lacking in diversity. In terms of boarding schools, the diversity is WONDERFUL, but having attended a smaller, very diverse school before, it was a large change/adjustment.
The facilities and resources that Choate has is amazing. All of their programs are well funded and conducted. They have such a range of clubs and activities, there is something for everyone!
I would highly recommend Choate from my personal experiences, but of course everyone experiences differ. :)

I came to Choate in the fall and have been very happy with my experience! The education here far surpasses anything I could've expected. Each class is intellectually stimulating and prepares you well for further education. There are a multitude of extracurricular offerings, and if you want something that isn't offered, you can start it yourself. The dorm life is fantastic; having prefects and an advisor in your dorm help to keep you on track and take care of yourself.
I attended Choate for 2 years and it has been the greatest experience I have ever had. The teachers are amazing and dedicated to your success, your classmates are competitive but even more supportive, and there are so many things to do and classes to take. Anyone can make their Choate experience exactly what they want it to be and faculty and staff will support you in doing so!
