My review seems to have gotten lost. Let me try again: My experience with my daughters is only for the Honors track. I cannot speak for the other tracks. I can say that for my kids the school did a fine job academically. Their PSAT and ACT scores were all around the 90th percentile. The problem here is that the attitudes taught are *very* traditional. They are not really into serious careers for women and these kids usually aren't encouraged to apply to top tier colleges. (They usually go to TI, Loyola, Stern and Touro). The good news is they don't have the social problems of other schools --the kids are all mutually supportive and there is no substance abuse or teen pregnancy here. But if your kid wants to head to Harvard to eventually be a brain surgeon she's going to have to ignore these, uhm, traditional, attitudes. If she can do that, the school has a lot to offer.

Although the girls were lovely, the education as a whole was very poor, particularly with regards to the English classes. The math was abysmal, and there were very few choices for the science classes. In general the school focused much more on the spiritual aspect of the education, which in my opinion, was a mistake.
