This school is creative, and yet rigorous. The arts are excellent here but so are the academic opportunities. In Debate, Math, Creative Writing, they are recognized nationally. But most importantly, the kids are confident, compassionate and leaders in training. My son (student/athlete/theater "geek") is thriving and he could go anywhere but the small community, attention of the excellent staff and entrepenuerial spirit to make your own thing happen, fully supported IS everything. The kids are not materialistic at all. The open-minded attitudes are welcoming and not just on the right side of history but leading it.
