Don’t get me wrong, I think Cate is great for stem and all, but I have seen the mindblowing resources at other boarding schools. You can’t tell me that other boarding schools aren’t as good or better. Whatever better means.
Love love love kiddo’s stem teachers at Cate. But other teachers at other schools knock it out of the park, too.
Look, this is high school we are talking about, not graduate school. These may be incredibly well-resourced high schools, but there is only so much a high school can offer. Gene-splicing in high school - who would have thought that was a thing?
The differences in quality between these schools in the rarified stem air they breathe are miniscule. If one has a particular program you want, great. But imho people spend too much time on the impossible task of sorting out what is “the best” instead of what they actually need. And not just about high school stem programs - about everything from brand of yogurt to kitchen countertops.
