Overall a more challenging school academically then the other private day schools in Delaware. Students are competitive but kind. Atmosphere is fair with a strong emphasis on students taking full responsibility for their academics, sports and creative endeavors. My son was at another private school in the area for K-8 and moved to THS in 9th grade. He has to work harder academically but he couldn't be happier. College prep starts in 8th and 9th grade. There are many clubs and opportunities for students to lead or try new things. Faculty is top notch. Most of my sons teachers have taught at the college level and some have PhD's. Great facilities for sports, drama and the sciences too.

The teachers are amazing, but the students have a terrible attitude. The school is very accustomed to the higher class and it doesn't provide a good environment socially.
Too much is required in athletic participation. The time required in athletic programs, in and out of the school, adds up to a greater time playing a sport than in a classroom. Thus, college prep or sports, not a choice?
