JTD new Head of School is disconnected, hypocritical and out of touch with today's world. Quotes such as; 'we don't do foreign language', 'the music room is in the basement', 'no art' and yet claiming to foster a well-rounded high standard of education for kids?! The 'parent interview' was the DA followed by Head of School talking all about herself, followed by some questions to selected students. The school claims they are completely unbiased to all cultures and financial status yet they proceed to tell you how many physicians, lawyers, CEOs are applying to the school with joy and give you every stat on YOU with the closer having the intonation of 'here's who you're up against, over 200 families applied this year, only a few are accepted'. They should just start the bidding at $30K a year and ask parents to open their checkbooks. It's upsetting that my child came out and said they enjoyed their time and would like to return when meanwhile I'm sitting in an appalling interview on the schools part thinking there's NO WAY I would send my child here. Not to mention 'observation day is also an utter waste of time; standing watching with no info and then being asked to leave.

John Thomas Dye is a good school. If challenging academics is what your after this school will get your lil one learning at a high level. Were relatively happy with the school. My only complaint is that there is no diversity.

My son's best friend attended here and we would compare homework assignments and I can say that this school had excellent organization and consistently challenging work. We were jealous!
