Or…in the words of some of our families…

  • The teachers and the attention they give my children. I also like the international diversity.

  • Superior academics and character development. Safety.

  • The fact that my kids are happy and thriving.

  • The feeling of belonging. The students as a whole are very close.

  • I like the communication and responsiveness of the staff... I believe that they truly care abut my child...

  • That all of my children's teachers KNOW them and not just their names.

  • My children are comfortable at school and look forward to attending. It is an integral part of their lives.

  • AP results from this past two years indicate that 74% of the exams written received a 3 or higher(national average 50%)

  • Our results on standardized tests like the ACT and SAT are among the highest in the state…24 ACT average (includes all TA students…)
