I don't believe all of the AOs reviewing applications are familiar with the boarding schools.
The AO from ASU (a very fine school) may be unfamiliar with the standards, but then they also get very few applicants from BSs.
Grading standards are unusually high. In the last five years, an average of only 21 students per class held an average of 90 or above. In the Class of 2020, the highest Junior-year average is 96.25.

@GoatMama - thanks for sharing but does the school give weighted grades or any type of “bump” for Honors or AP courses ?
