    "I read the reviews and I must disagree with most of the comments, "The teachers at this school go above and beyond for every student I know. They meet them where they are and work really hard to get them to excel." We have had a less than satisfactory experience. My daughter was in the school last year and was in the Honors Spanish. I talked with the teacher several times personally and asked if she could help my daughter 10 minutes after school 3 times within a 5 week period- just 30 minutes. She said, she "could not do that." This is NOT a school where teachers give personal attention. If a kid starts to fall behind, they continue to fall behind. Oh, wait, they have a tutoring service where you can PAY additional money (beyond their incredible tuition) to be tutored by students from a College nearby- not any classroom teachers. My daughter left stressed to the max (enough to be treated by a psychologist) and we are now happy where we are- across town. This is a VERY unsatisfactory educational program."

    "My daughter went to this school and we pulled her out. The Honors Spanish teacher never had time to work with her for even 10 minutes after school- once a week. She also took Honors History whereby she had at least- and I am not overestimating-5 hours of homework for this class only. The stress was too much and we pulled her out. There too much "in breeding" --- too many teachers related to teachers/administrators. They have their kids going to the school, etc. Administrators do nothing and for the tuition, one would think that extra help would be an automatic. They do have a tutoring avenue- NOT the classroom teachers, but students from the local college. The best way to determine a good high school is the colleges they go to. These kids mostly go to Clemson, College of Charleston and not HIGH quality schools. My daughter was admitted to Yale- without all of the stress of this school. Go figure."

    "My daughter transitioned into Porter Gaud in the seventh grade. We had the option of going to neighboring Ashley Hall (all girls) or Porter Gaud and I truly believe we made the right choice. We have yet to experience the elitism or cliques. Academically this is a superior school, the fine arts are great compared to others in the area and the school is competitive in the sporting arena. I totally forgot to mention that the student life and clubs are more than my oldest had in school. Although it is pricey, we wouldn't send her anywhere else. She loves this school!!!!"
