Advice on cultures at Exeter, Andover, Deerfield, Choate, St. Paul's, Hotchkiss
Hello - first time on this board. We are looking at several boarding schools with our daughter who will be going into 9th. Specifically looking at Andover, Exeter, Choate, Deerfield, St. Paul's and Hotchkiss. Can anyone provide some information on the culture of each of these schools? For example, which ones are more traditional, is the focus on the whole child or simply academic excellence, which ones are to put it bluntly "snootier" or tougher socially, is there a lot of focus on athletics etc. We plan to visit them later this fall but would welcome any thoughts here. Thanks.
