To quote another reviewer, " the environment is heavily influenced by a wealthy, white upper-middle class majority." Maybe I'm mistaken but, isn't most of society that way? I don't think it's the schools fault that well to-do families choose to send their children here. Or that the school is mostly white; the majority of the northern Twin Cities suburbs are white. The school simply reflects the area in which is sits. And if wealthy families pay good money to send their kids here, then I feel it speaks to the school's high quality. We all know rich people don't tolerate poor return on investments. The school does everything it can to level the playing field; e.g. uniforms so everyone's clothes look the same, no prom court so there is no popularity contest ever Spring, required community service to show students how the other half lives etc. Grace is out-standing. Second to none is its formation of well-rounded, educated, physically talented, wordly, forward thinking, successful, Chrisitan adults. Of my graduate friends alone there are lawyers, doctors, journalists, social workers, teachers, professional artists, editors and investment bankers.
