    "Academically, I delivered an accomplished, well-rounded, athletic, artistic, musical, straight A student very well positioned for ultimate admission to a Top 20 national university; or Top 10, depending on SAT Prep and outcome. I question the availability and expertise of the adult support system, or existence of counseling/ advisory staff because within the first months my 10th grader is now a 'C' student and repeating a math class taken in 8th grade despite math being the significabtly higher SSAT score and long standing strength. i hope for better; I've yet to figure out the school. What I do know: It's a lovely, small campus, with students and faculty who are welcoming and engaging, Due to distance, I'm unfamiliar with day to day operations or degree of parental oversight. I doubt Stevenson targets elite private universities or that it is deemed a feeder school. Fortunately, Stevenson has a seemingly strong involved alumni base. Those I spoke with shared the school positively impacted their life. My student's going down an unchartered path soon to realize college expectations need to be modified. (I have another child who graduated from a Top 5 national university."

    "I attended Stevenson for all four years of High School, and I absolutely loved it. When I think back about the time I spent there and the friendships I made, I would never have gone anywhere else. Talking to my friends in college I realize the relationships that we built with teachers by living with them and by spending time during free periods getting extra help is incomparable to most schools. In fact I'm still in touch with many of my teachers, dorm parents, and coaches because in the end they were our mentors and friends. The campus is beautiful, and the dorms are amazing, especially senior year because seniors get the biggest singles in the newest dorms. The students there are so wonderful almost everyone is polite and friendly,the thing I have found most astounding is that even the most uninteresting looking person on campus has a special talent or skill. I know that I could talk to just about anybody about anything and they would be able to carry on an interesting and fun conversation. Not only does Stevenson teach academics to each students individual level it also teaches professional social skills through weekly formal dinners. If I could go back here I would."

    "Stevenson School has been my daughters home away from home for almost 3 years. She will graduate from there in 2015 and couldn't be happier as a boarder. It is an expensive option, but well worth it for what you get in return. Yes, sports are required after school, but there are many options (field hockey to swimming to yoga), and I'm happy that they have organized sports that get kids to exercise. Besides that, the parent's club has been incredibly supportive - providing snacks etc. The faculty are the best that I've every seen. The setting is beautiful and parents know that their child is well taken care of. Academics are tough, but you know that if your kid can rise to the challenge, then they will do very well in college. This was the only school that my daughter applied to, and we have never regretted our decision to allow her to go there. Next year when she graduates, there will be a lot of tears, but knowing the friendships and memories that she has made will make it all worthwhile. Overall, the student population is diverse, the administration communicates well, the teachers are incredible, and this school takes learning seriously. It is worth the price."

    "Stevenson School likes to think that it is a competitive school along the lines of an East Coast boarding school, but the truth is that more than half of the students who pay full tuition couldn't compete on merit to get in. Faculty pushes the smart kids to the breaking point to make up for the other half. There is no "joy of learning" here, as the website used to say. It's all about performance and pushing kids to become mindless achievers who worship at the altar of US News' college rankings. Many of the faculty have graduate degrees, albeit most institutions represented are regional and mediocre. Most disturbingly for me as a parent is the fact that there is no true concern about students' well-being: as long as they get As, the school will leave the smart kids alone. They are then free to crash and burn on their own, with no accommodation from the school. Parental involvement is discouraged. For all the push, Stevenson's college placement rate is not much better than that of local public high schools. Frankly, it just wasn't worth it either in terms of enormous stress placed on the kids or the tuition paid."
