Phenomenal school with great college placement, excellent school culture and rigorous academics. Perfect for students who are looking for a challenging yet nurturing environment where it is easy to thrive in the classroom, playing fields, and in the dorms. Great facilities, helpful teachers, and engaging curriculum.
Last year an upper was asked to leave based on bullying. That doesn't appear to be tolerated but it may be dorm specific. It's never been an issue in my experience. I know someone who was uncomfortable and it was reported and immediately stopped. The health center is 24/7, it's ok. The nurses aren't the nicest. Health programs aren't widely known and mental health/wellness leaves a lot to be desired. It's not discussed for the most part. This past year was the first time and it seems more in response to some emergent situation vs an important focus.
Clubs, freedom, and friendships initially distract from the tougher things that you may experience at this school. Remember that friends and family are nearby, and that it's important to take a breather every once in a while. A bad teacher, grade, or college rejection isn't the end of the world. Make it through, then make the most of it and move on!
