    I believe I have gotten the best education at Pembroke Hill than I would at any other school in the area. The teachers and the administration really care about student's success. The community is small so you get close with teachers and students. The academic pressure is very high, but there are many resources to help you succeed and everyone is very supportive. The school is also very good at preparing students for college, with a large college counseling program. My one complaint would be the lack of racial diversity, but the school is doing a lot of work to increase diversity in the school. Socially, I think everyone will be able to find friends. Despite the school being small, there are so many different types of students and personalities that everyone should feel at home!

    Pembroke is an incredible opportunity to explore everything you've wanted to know about yourself and your community (be it global, local or both). The classes are a rigorous means to cultivate a high-performing atmosphere, will great reward. Here, I feel that I'm prepared for any upcoming challenges that may confront me, because I have been tested and pushed to succeed before -- proving to myself how resilient I can be. Just like in any environment, students may find setbacks, but its the 'freedom with responsibility' atmosphere that often times allows students to overcome the hardships they may face.
    The best: The teachers. They make everything else worth it. I still keep in touch with them, and consider many of them personal friends. They care deeply about their students and want them to be successful, but also to feel like they learned something beyond how to simply pass a test. You will be prepared for any college experience if you attend Pembroke Hill.
    The good: The campus is beautiful. The opportunities to get involved are plentiful.
    The less-good: While there are opportunities to do whatever, the schools #1 priority without a doubt is academics. If you care predominantly about athletics or about the arts, this may not be the school for you. Everything comes second to schoolwork. There is also very little diversity, especially socioeconomic diversity. Pembroke comes with a hefty price tag and those who can afford to pay it don't necessarily come from a variety of backgrounds.
