Nonesuch is definitely a home to me. Lynne and Richard and all the staff are so loving and caring. Lynne is dedicated to every student 'getting' every subject. Nonesuch accommodates all types of learning styles and interests, with the underlying idea that everyone is equal, valued and unique. I am still close friends with most of my teachers and peers. I have a love for learning that was fostered so tenderly at Nonesuch. Thank goodness for Lynne and her dedication to students and a school where joy is part of the curriculum.

Nonesuch prepares students for the "real world", while foster creativity and respecting each student as an individual.

This was an amazing school for me. The teachers give each student a huge amount of individual attention and small classes lead to in-depth discussions that just don't happen at most schools. I graduated from here and ended up graduating Summa Cum Laude from college and went on to get an MFA.

This is an amazing school where kids want to learn! There are opportunities for many different kinds of learning at Nonesuch based on the individual student's needs. Nonesuch is a warm supportive environment in a stunning setting.

Nonesuch is like no other school. Do your kids dislike school? Do they feel as if they can't connect with their teachers and peers? At nonesuch, i actually enjoy going to school. I feel connected with my teachers on a much more personal level, and i'm learning so much more from teachers here. Classes at nonesuch are not monotonous and taught out of textbooks...You're taught what you really need to know, and it's much more hands-on activity and discussion in the classroom. It is also much more 'chill' to go to school at nonesuch because the people are great. I would seriously recommend looking into this school because it has changed my life. Nonesuch makes school fun and comfortable...It's not a concrete jungle like most high schools. We are not herded around by bells, and the campus is beautiful. I love going to school in a forest.

An excellent private school that fits the curriculum to the child. This school offers great art and music programs as well as college preperatory classes. A small class size and diverse student community creates a family like bond between students and teachers.

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.
