I am the parent of a 9th grade girl. She had a super K-8 Waldorf education and is now enjoying a small democratic/community/progressive school. I'm looking into boarding schools (east coast only,please) for her junior and senior years. She is a very capable student,particularly in math and science, but her passion is art and music (guitar). She will need a small, casual, liberal school--someplace very artsy that can help her through the college application process with an eye toward Bennington, Skidmore, etc.
Buxton is on my radar although reviews on it are scarce. Can anyone point me toward other schools or give feedback on Buxton? Thanks!
