i.e. time with friends, leaving campus to go into town, dances and time to have off-campus parties... typical teenage stuff.

    Hotchkiss, because I go here. Ha, on a more serious note, no one can honestly answer that question as no one (or very few people at best) has been to more than one prep school for extended periods of time - well at least long enough to get a feel for the true social dynamic of the place. So all we can do is describe the social vibe at our particular school, not compare and contrast.

    If you're looking for lots of off-campus activities, try a school located in an urban area - like Milton for instance.

    Or, you can just stay at a public school and party there all the time.

    Andover is wonderful. We only have three or four Saturday classes per year, dances every weekend, and a lot of trips off campus. Homework is usually VERY manageable on weekends, with a few exceptions. Plus, I happen to get a lot of socializing done on weekdays, but that's just me!

    Exeter is horrible socially. Andover I know to be a lot of fun, and I go to SPS which I can tell you is certainly great, although we are all very busy here with work, sports, and Saturday 1/2 days.

    From the top 5, the two best are definitely Andover and SPS
