    "Calverton is a warm, caring, nurturing environment that challenges students to think outside the box and prepares them well to be leaders of tomorrow. An IB World, the only one of its kind in Southern Maryland, gives its students an opportunity to excel in and out of the classroom."

    "I loved the family atmosphere as a former student. The people I graduated with are like my brothers and sisters. Teachers really do love what they're doing and I felt prepared for college."

    "My son started at Calverton in Pr-K. Nearly 5 years in and it has been a wonderful experience. The small class sizes promotes individual learning styles. Calverton's lower school curriculum is academically challenging but totally age appropriate. My son is also learning compassion, honor and integrity."

    "The environment at Calverton is so miserable and hostile. Teachers are unhappy, students are unhappy. No one wants to do their work. The IB program is clunky, disorganized, and tedious, and a waste of time and money. Social life is uncomfortable and strained; if you don't fit the mold of a "perfect student" or if you look different, have different interests, or are of a differing gender/sexual identity, you are seen as a monster. I know very few students who felt comfortable truly being themselves while enrolled at Calverton. There are incredible facilities at Calverton, but most of them are hardly used. This includes a large extensive prop-making shop which is used as an off-limits storage closet and a beautiful green room/sewing shop which is so full of trash and grime you literally have to wade through it to move about the room. The arts at Calverton are neglected in favor of sports and academics; theatre is ridiculously under-budgeted and visual arts is run by a teacher who believes art is strictly technical and paint-by-numbers, and does not give room for creativity or expression. The school boasts that it gives lots of freedom to students, but every "safe place" for students has been taken away by administration and turned into offices. The atrium, which was the sole place of respite and comfort for students was turned into a glass-walled office for the head of the school, despite the fact that he already had a large, comfortable, office in another building. Not only was the comfort place of the students taken away, it was replaced by a sign they were not trusted; the glass walls allowed the head to watch over students, giving them no privacy. Students at Calverton are miserable. They are taught to bow their head and do work with complacency, and never challenge those who hurt them. They are cowed down and discouraged from expression and freedom. I am very lucky to have left, and my peers have all expressed they wished to do the same."
