Four Great Reasons

Great Teachers

You remember forever the great teachers, the ones who went out of their way to know you, support you, and encourage you to do things you didn’t think you could do.


Tremendous Opportunities

At its root, "opportunity" means “favorable wind.”More than anything, you want your children to have opportunities in life.


Nurturing Every Student

Ask parents with kids in independent schools what they most value about the school, and they almost always say that they love the personal attention their child receives.


Welcoming Communities

Families go to independent schools not because of an accident of geography, but because they identify with the school's mission, beliefs and dedication to excellence in education.
