High Bluff Academy's programs will help any student to improve his or her chances of getting accepted into a top choice university, regardless if the student is aiming for a state college or an Ivy League. The teachers are exceptional and go out of their way to help each student succeed. The classes are very small and students even have the option to take classes one on one. Students also benefit from the tutorial classes where they can get help with their homework and improve study skills during their school day. Even thought the school is small, there are a variety of electives and activities.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
