Baylor consistently produces National Merit Scholars, high SAT/ACT scores, and hish scores on AP exams. They also place great emphasis on extra-cirriculars, not just their champion sports, but their award-winning outdoor, community service, and choral programs, along with hundreds of others of optional great programs and clubs. They have many student-run academic and leadership clubs and organizations, ranging from debate club and environmental club, to National Honor Society, to math club, to student government, to the Honor Council. Students are taught independence, gratitude, honor, self-discipline, study and time management techniques, servant leadership, and appreciation of the backgrounds and cultures of others. The opportunities afforded to me by this school are incredible and should not be squandered.

Amount of homework: Disagree

They expect you to do around 6 hours worth of homework. My child has sports, needs to eat dinner AND have extra time on the side. They're just a child. They're mind is developing. Ease up.

This school expelled 6 boarding students within half a year. It was purely for business purposes. They couldn't care less about your child's well being. They have a lack of understanding children and accepting their mistakes. I recommend the opposing schools, McCallie and GPS. Their academics are also far superior.

Amazing! It just cannot get any better than this. I have been teaching in the public schools for 11 years and know that my children would never get education like this one in even the highest performing public school. This is one of the very best schools not just in Tennessee but in America. My child absolutely loves it here. There are no areas that I could improve upon. The faculty communicates with the parents, nurtures and know the kids and are incredible teachers. The sports are amazing too. I believe they have more than one hundred state championships in the last decade! The facilities are outstanding. With a huge endowment and a generous alumni base they have constructed a world class athletic program. More than 120 years of tradition and honor have formed a community that is as amazing as it is rare.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

Baylor has the best teachers anywhere! They often have PhD's in their field of instruction and are incredibly compassionate and interested in their students. The faculty is really world class.

This school is terrible, my kids did not enjoy their time there at all. All my kids are transferring next year after witnessing what the school did to some other students.

If you aren't extremely wealthy don't come to this school. It's extremely cliquish. The students are stuck up snobs. 16 year olds driving Mercedes and Bmw's that have never worked a day in their life. The coaches definitely play favorites. With all that being said there is one positive side and that is the academics. Teachers expect a lot from you, and if you can't keep up they aren't very helpful. Good school, but if you from working class blue collard background you will stick out like a sore thumb.



- a
Simply the best.. As one person put it, the Standford of high school. They'll beat you in academics and athletics!




- a
Baylor school couldn't get any better! It has everything! It is a little bit expencive but Baylor has a great acedimic and sports program.

I went there over 15 years ago and it's still top in education and sports. I wouldn't be running two successful companies w/o attending.
