Thayer Academy is actually increasing it’s attempts at developing a much more diverse atmosphere with a new department being made dedicated to that one cause. Sports is also a major proponent for success in Thayer’s atmosphere and the varsity soccer team just won their division championship! Also thayer holds one of the best track and field, ice hockey, and football teams in the ISL. Academically speaking thayer is a very difficult school to stay on top in but if you have a chance at success or studying a little longer then take it.

Having attended thayer myself it was impossible to send my child off to another school and ensure his being educated in a well rounded environment so he took the entrance exam and was placed in all the honors classes. Now he is extremely involved in extracurricular activities around campus such as giving tours, tutoring his peers, and plenty of volunteering opportunities. Without thayer my child would’ve never had the success they deserved!
Your academic experience will never be prepared to take on the awesomeness that is Thayer Academy. It’s amazing that it’s diversity score is so low when diversity has been brought to table on many accounts with the school even having a director for it. It’s also kind of awesome how they give so much freedom to the kids allowing them to pursue another extracurricular area of particular interest. I feel that there was no better choice than right in Braintree, MA at Thayer Academy.
