I am also "a parent" and would like to respond to the other "parent" who posted in Feb. The school board has two parents as members. Of course there are no teachers on the board; find another private school in the country that has such a set-up! The administration has definitely become more strict this year so I'm not sure "fickle" is really the case, evidenced by the five recent suspensions and one expulsion. Complaints below are probably coming from the parent of one of these students.

This school is on its way out. It has not much direction. Teachers are text book only and no latest greatest things. Always asking for money or donations of things when this is suppose to be a new school with new things has a hefty price tag to attend. No real PTA, Board members have been the same forever no terms no teachers on board no budget has been seen? I feel to send a child here now you are taking a big risk of not being able to finish due to unstable budget and management

This is a small school with limited resources. The administration is completely fickle when it comes to the expectations of student behavior and the consequences of inappropriate actions by changing the rules as needed. Favoritism and discrimination is very prevalent among the leaders of the school. They are more concerned about bringing in money than the well being of their students, which is why tuition increases every year. The core cirriculum classes are taught well, however, if you are looking to expand your children's interests in non-core related material, this school is not for you. They do not have the resources to offer a class for all students. My advice, enroll your child in the Frederick County Public school system, which has been ranked #5 in Maryland!
