Hola! It's me again. I might be jumping the gun on this one a little too early, but this year, I am trying to be very prudent in my school selections, so I wanted to make this thread.
Specifically, this thread is for the lesser-known schools. I know that there are SO many boarding schools that are as wonderful as the ones that are mentioned ALL the time on this website. What I need YOU to do is if you know any of these Schools (think outside the box!) then please list them in your post below.
Additionally, something really nice from current and former students, as well as adults, is to provide an in-depth description of the school. How the vibe is, what classes and programs are unique, what sport or art it is particularly strong in, etc. I think if someone provides with me a good description of a school, instead of listing the names and saying, "Look this up!" would particularly pique my interest.
There is also something I would personally like. I would love it if someone can say to me, "So and so schools don't take incoming sophomore applications," or, "So and so school accepts a lot of incoming sophomores." Lets try putting, I don't know, an asterisk for a school that accepts lots of incoming sophomores?
So, to start off the list, I'll name a couple of schools. I don't have any affiliation with a school, so I'm counting on you guys to fill the blanks!
Episcopal High School
Miss Porter's School (All-girls)
St. George's School
