Exeter is literally known as being the best school in the U.S.A. I agree to the fullest level.
Very difficult school. Faculty doesn't help very much. Lot of clubs and class offerings, but older students don't help new ones fit in easily, especially if they are uppers or seniors.
Superb school for very bright children who can handle pressure. Excellent teachers and classes, incredible sports facilities, beautiful campus. Students who have attended Exeter have a confidence and maturity that you don't find elsewhere. They can handle anything after Exeter. My son graduated in 2002 after 4 years there, and he is already a leader in his college community as a sophmore, and this is a very large university. Exeter gave him so much! I can't say enough good things about this school. It is rigorous and very challenging, and not for the weak of spirit.
Fabulous school for the superbright, competitive child. Top-notch facilities and teachers. Abundance of extra-curricular activities.
Our daughter graduated in 2002. We were very pleased with her education and life experiences while on campus in Exeter for 3 years and 1 year in Spain with the 'School Year Abroad' program which they co-sponsor with St. Paul's and Andover.
