Stevenson school vs Webb schools

My son got accepted into these two schools but I just couldn't decide which one I should send him to attend. Can any current student parents comment on these two schools?

    Not many RLS or Webb families on CC, unfortunately.

    Have you asked the two schools to put you in touch with current families? They should both be more than willing to help you out with this.

    Good luck!

    My S2 looked at Webb, but not Stevenson. Webb is wonderfully closeknit and struck us as a place to receive an excellent education. Each class is filled with very focused and talented students academically--so your S will most likely to be happy there only if he is the type that thrives around very hard working and academically advanced students (we did not get the feel there are too many jocks). Stevenson will not be nearly as academically challenging and seems to attracts more well rounded (and somewhat more privileged) kids.
