Alumni here. I had an amazing experience attending and graduating from Excelsior. It has been life-changing for me. From lifelong friends I had made to the incredible teaching staff, Excelsior has taught me invaluable lessons. The academic curriculum is rigorous yet challenging and fun. The support and endless resources are outstanding, the teachers are always available to assist me outside of the classroom. Attending Excelsior not only prepared me for college but also life after college. Thank you Excelsior!

Excelsior School is the best boarding school high school in Los Angeles area! The dormitory located in its 17 acre campus. My teachers always find ways to get students involved and to do their best. Students are very friendly. I learn a lot in Excelsior. Most of my friends who graduated from Excelsior were accepted by top 50 national universities.
As a former Excelsior Student, I would say my experience at Excelsior School was great. The school offers college preparatory courses including more than 6 AP courses each semester. The school and teachers helped me to prepare well for college.
