    "First off - take what you read here with a grain of salt -- those motivated to vent and complain do so with total abandon, and those compelled to write overly-glowing praise do the opposite - it's all anonymous with no accountability. That said, as a GA grad myself, I have to mostly agree with things said by the parent below on 4/16/11. If you're a jock or a brain, you've got built-in advantages -- if you're loaded, even better. And the best? If you're a legacy. The caste system is alive and well everywhere, to some degree, but it's off the charts and on steroids at GA. Kids driving mercedes and BMWs at 16, double-standards for punishment favoring those with the right last name, and an uber-competitive spirit that doesn't engender a lot of what kids ACTUALLY need between the ages of 12 and 18: nurturance, respect, acceptance. The teachers and administration are often not only aware of the harsh social environment, they condone and elicit it, in ways intentional and unintentional. Surely GA's culture's calcified this way over years and some parents literally want to pay for that. Kids who get hazed there have parents unaware of both GA and their own children themselves."

    "It is not worth it at all. School administration is amazingly awful. It is just another average public school level."

    "Upper School - Although the school has stellar academics, there are many overly entitled, competitive, and mean spirited kids. Jocks and kids who party tend to fair better than other types. How does this differ from any other school you might ask? A) your child will probably have more social options assuming the student body is larger, and B) you're not paying $27,000 per year for the experience. That being said, the social climate is better in some grades versus others. If you are considering sending your teen here, I would strongly advise you to have him/her visit for the day and pay close attention to the social dynamics, which in my opinion is the school's biggest negative."

    "I very much dislike this school, since it does not have any good points. GA is the worst possible school to even think about. I would hate, yes, absolutely, positively hate to go there."

    "I was raised by two PhD professors who held high expectations for the schools I attended. Germantown Academy (which I attended from 6th-12th grade) was the seminal academic experience of my life, setting the bar higher than could be matched by the colleges I subsequently attended. They delivered a rigorous academic experience, nurturing faculty, and opportunities to try your hand at any subject or skill you might want to pursue. The faculty were both my mentors and friends who encouraged me to pursue my dreams. This is an institution absolutely devoted to its students and to raising the next generations of leaders. Thank you, GA! (My mother recently told me: "I wish I had another kid so I could send them to GA.")"
