    This school literally saved my daughter’s life. Being intellectually curious, her previous school did not challenge her and she was on her way to becoming a surly adolescent who would be disinterested in learning. Poly, because of its creative approach to learning and its flexibility in scheduling, encouraged her to pursue her passion in math and science. She has excelled academically and is happy. She also was able to be fully engaged in athletics. Poly has been the best decision we have made as a family.

    This school fosters an impressive learning environment that puts its students far ahead of the game in terms of preparation for college. It has its downfalls, as every school has, but I'm very grateful for the opportunities I've been given by attending this institution. I've created the best bonds with teachers and students and my talents have been able to flourish within the environment.
    I believe our Head of School is piloting this school towards the top of the heap. I am a parent of three boys, one recent graduate and two current students. In the last 3 years Poly has moved toward a more modern approach to every aspect of education. Decisions a remote data driven while maintaining the heart of the school. Parents have a greater sense of community. The administration is much more connected to the student body and the parent body than it had been under the past Head of School.
