<p>anyone have any thoughts?</p>

<p>i havent looked into sps, but i have a feeling it is a little better academic wise than nmh. although nmh looks pretty good, they just dont seem to have the academics that many of the other schools possess...such ones i think sps does also (although again, not too sure onn that)</p>

<p>The academics at NMH are just as strong; you just don't have the same student body. Don't get me wrong, the students at NMH are excellent, it is just not a group that is entirely Ivey-focused. Not every bright person aspires to an Ivy. If you want to go to an Ivy and have what it takes, then NMH is the perfect place to achieve that goal. It really comes down to which school you prefer. We visited NMH, SPS, and Exeter with my older son and did not care at all for Exeter or SPS. They just seemed stifling and snobby to us, whereas NMH was so incredibly warm and welcoming. I know not everyone feels this way and, living in close proximity to all of these schools, we have several friends whose children attend all of them, so it is really a personal choice.</p>


<p>Both are wonderful schools.</p>

<p>Both have ginormous campuses. :)
I love that word. :D
It depends on what you are looking for in a school-prestige, academics, college matriculation, athletics, experience,etc.
Try going to the revisits, you will have a better idea of what the schools are like then.</p>

<p>I love both schools, and it would have been hard to make that decision (although I wish that I was GIVEN the option :( ) haha
good luck in whatever you do.
yeah, I'm not much help, but I am putting that out there.</p>
