Salisbury School 5

Salisbury is a fine school that takes sometimes troubled boys and makes something positive of them. While it may not be the "most prestigious" prep school available, it gives kids unfocused boys guidance and a place to become stand up men. If he went to the high school in our town, I could see him making poor decisions. When my son went up there he was a kid with some respect issues and questionable friends. Now he is going to a first tier liberal arts college, and has respect for adults, authority, and different cultures. The coaches he has encountered have been wonderful role models.

Couldn't be happier. This school "gets" boys. They do learn differently. They need athletics. They need hands on learning. They need exposure to the arts. Salisbury provides this in an incomparable package. It is small (~300 students), but since it is all boys they compete with the Class A schools. Our son has played varsity sports, taken several arts classes and starred in the school play. Sports are very competitive, but there are many rec options. The important things they instill is that participation and being part of a team are key, and even the last boy on the roster gets the same attention, coaching and respect as the Division 1 prospect. They send the boys to as strong a college list as any prep school. Find out were the boys (not girls) go to college at other "elite" schools and Salisbury compares very favorably. Our son wasn't a college athletic prospect but he left Salisbury with several elite college options. We can't say enough good things about the school. If you're a parent of a teenage boy, give the school ample consideration.
