    Marlborough is an excellent school that has great teachers and connections. However, the atmosphere was constricting, cold, hyper-competitive, and offered little support. While I think it is important to be competitive, the way in which these students bring down their fellow peers does not promote healthy competition. Few wish the person next to them success out of fear that they might surpass their academic or athletic excellence and in turn, they relish others' failures. Additionally, the majority of the people I was surrounded by were incredibly privileged and sheltered making this community feel confining. While my peers were certainly intelligent, many had never pushed themselves to be uncomfortable in any other setting besides school, so many of them were immature, materialistic, closed-minded, and lacked perspective This culture progressively ate at me until finally, I reached a point in which I simply could not justify being so miserable and transferred after freshman year.

    There is no doubt that Marlborough is one of the top high schools in the US. The school curriculum and general rigor of instruction does prepare the students for highly selective colleges and universities. However, unless you consider yourself a hyper liberal/progressive and your daughter relishes becoming a easily triggered snowflake with a narrow view toward anyone who doesn't tow the liberal line, then look elsewhere. The school has become a breeding ground for social justice warriors who bully and isolate anyone who might utter a non politically correct word. There is no room for differing views...and the new teachers recruited are almost encouraged to brainwash the girls into believing that only the ultra liberal POV is worth expressing, both verbally and in any assignment. Girls use social media to denigrate others and are adept at leveling disparaging comments to those they don't believe share their views. After reading some of the tweets I was disgusted.
    I so believe in Marlborough's core values and formative role in contributing to the person I am today. When I was at Marlborough, I took for granted that all or most schools were the same. In college at UCLA, I realized that was not the case. College was easy after all the preparation and encouragement I had received at Marlborough. And now, 25 years out from graduation, I am still in touch with many of classmates and see them regularly - the life long friendships are another bonus!
