    "Solebury School was a great experience for our two sons. They had wonderful teachers, a supportive environment, a good curriculum and, most of all, they enjoyed going to school. The reason they enjoyed school is because the atmosphere at Solebury is very satisfying for teenagers. The teachers and administrators treat them with respect, and the students appreciate that. The students are continually encouraged to accept one another, regardless of differences, so bullying and clique behavior is minimal. The school gives the students a lot of independence and control over their time, which helps them feel relaxed and less stressed. Overall, Solebury School is great environment for learning and growing."

    "As a boarding school, Solebury is a disaster. Lacking weekend activities or supervision, students turn to their own forms of entertainment. This policy is defended by suggesting better preparation for college life. Well, most 18 year olds are challenged by their first years away from home; can you imagine how a 15 year old might react? For a school that prides itself on progressive thinking, Solebury s disciplinary process is antiquated, inflexible, and ineffective. Last year a major incident ensued after a student had undergone the disciplinary process. He had been coerced into reporting on his friends leaving him completely ostracized. Distraught, he reacted by setting the student lounge on fire. Certainly tragic however, the lesson lies in Solebury s reaction. Shortly thereafter, the director issues a letter absolving Solebury of any responsibility. Even more shocking was his insistence that if ever faced with similar circumstances, they would do nothing differently; yes, nothing. Solebury has some very good teachers. Unfortunately, administration s poor management skills, sense of entitlement, and lack of accountability make this school a non-starter for perspective boarders."

    "The Solebury School is small, diverse, and personalized. Staff and faculty all work very hard to create an environment that encourages intellectual and personal growth, as well as social consciousness. The low student:staff ratio makes it hard for students to fall through the cracks. In my experience, Solebury's staff and faculty have been very responsive to individual students' unique learning needs, and for those students who need extra assistance, a fine Learning Support program is available, unusual in scope and quality for a school its size."

    "Small student body size is largely responsible for a personalized and effective learning environment, with caring teachers committed to the school, its students, and its vision of allowing young people learn how to think -- rather than what to think. The school also boasts a new state-of-the-art science building, vital to bringing the next generation on par in terms of scientific achievements, as well as a new athletic facility. This combination puts an emphasis on improving oneself in mind and body."
