School Reviews

  • Recommended June 30, 2010 - Overall, the teachers are very good. However, like anywhere there are exceptions due to bad tenure, etc. The selection of courses is broad, including Honors and AP's. Academics is very extremely competitive. This school has an exceptionally strong music department. All sports other than football are excellent. Basketball, Soccer, Lacrosse and tennis are more popular than football. The facility and grounds are relatively new and very well-maintained. Good choice of healthy, contemporary lunch food. Very diverse and respectful student body. Overall a very liberal-leaning school, like the town (see school newspaper). However, there are some teachers with moderate views. As in most cases/places, better to keep your politics to yourself. It's a very driven environment, so most importantly, it needs to be a good match for a student that's comfortable with that type of high expectations. - Posted by Parent
