Choate Rosemary Hall Reviews

My son graduated this past June from Choate and we loved every minute of his time there. The teachers are excellent--dedicated, interesting, and knowledgeable. My son is successfully balancing everything his first year in college (even taking an extra full load) while others on his hall are struggling. He attributes this to his time at Choate, which taught him about how to efficiently study, organize his day, and find a healthy balance in his life. The curriculum is definitely challenging and will prepare you for college and beyond. The whole Choate experience is amazing and we are sad that it seemed to go by too fast!!

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.

Go Choate!
Students at Choate seem to place an importance on collaboration, camaraderie, creativity, and general well being in addition to academics. They are motivated to do well in the academics, but it's not at the expense of others. There isn't an overwhelming sense of stress or pressure that we felt as in some of the other schools and that's why my son chose to attend Choate versus the other top schools. In terms of college admissions percentages, students at Choate attend the top colleges as the other schools in similar percentages, if not more in some schools, but the sense of teens just enjoying being a student was evident at Choate. We saw lots of smiling, friendly faces and laughter throughout the campus every time we visited. And the students who graduated loved it. Every time we were there with our son, students seemed happy and engaged and glad to be there.
