Education is only as good as the teachers and most of them are great. My child scored over 2000 on SAT and has gotten letters from Harvard, Vassar as well as other prestigious Universities. The school is small so there are many opportunities for students to lead or play sports while large enough to have decent teams. Parents are very involved for the most part, those who leave unhappy usually arrived unhappy with their previous school. It is a school of choice.

The academic quality is low. Uniforms are addressed strictly. Doing something like untucking your shirt or hugging can get you detention for the res of the day or longer,lowering the amount of education a student receives. The uniforms as well as the cost to do normal activiteswill literary make you broke.
