As a graduate of Conard, I have had the pleasure of having both my kids graduate from Conard as well. From a kid's viewpoint, this is a very active, socially involved school that provides a wide variety of activities - sports to academic - that give kids an extra edge. As a parent, the teachers and administration are excellent, communicative and actively making sure you stay involved in your child's education. Is it a perfect place? No, but without the challenges, kids wouldn't have the kind of experiences that challenge them academically as well as socially. Conard is and has continually been one of the top schools in the state and deservedly so. This is a school that positively validates why you pay taxes.
My kids had a wonderful education at Conard, got into their first choice colleges, received scholarships because of their academic achievments, and were successful in college (1 done, 1 about to graduate, 1 freshman). I give Conard all the credit. We loved it!
The four children in our family and four of our children have attended Conard, gotten great educations, and went on to some of the top colleges in the country. The parent community is lovely, the teachers caring and professional, and there is a vibrant array of activities that has something for everyone. Diversity, high academic standards, and a town that benefits from it all.
