University Liggett School Reviews

University Liggett is my home away from home. Since the community is small, the teachers can focus on every student and everyone knows each other. The teachers are extremely supportive of what is important to the student, and many of the classes are flexible according to the student's passions. Students enter University Liggett intelligent and motivated, and they graduate an expert in subjects they care deeply about with a strong sense of themselves and how to succeed. I have treasured my experience at University Liggett.

It's okay, but it is no better and possibly worse than other local options. The sports teams are mediocre and the school building is falling apart.

Many parents pay tutors over the summer to catch their kids up on math and reading because kids who transfer to other schools especially North and South are far behind. The big senior project is not any different than what the other schools are doing, only that it has a fancy name.

The college admissions process is good and worth the money if you are interested in having your child attend the Ivies. They send a handful of kids to Ivy League Schools every year.

Overall I would say send your child here if you want the prestige and college admissions counseling, but if you want a school with more rigor and challenging classes, apply elsewhere.
University Liggett School has been a great school for my children. My oldest who is in college now was ready and well prepared. The school community is warm and caring and a great atmosphere for all families. Students learn to find their passion. One of the things I love is that it is cool to be smart and kids learn collaboration. The project base learning that happens in each division of the school is amazing!
