Description of service

My son attends a private school in Exeter, New Hampshire. The school provides education for about 1000 students, both boarding and day and is considered one of the most prestigious in the country. There are excellent programs in many disciplines, as well as many strong athletic programs. The school runs for nine months, and there is also a seperate summer program.

Review of Service

The quality of the service we have recieved has been excellent. Two of my sons have attended this school and have recieved top - notch educations that were easily worth the (very significant) tuition that we spent. I would absolutely recommend this school to any parents of bright children looking for an excellent education.


Families who send children to boarding school should certainly consider the cost versus the quality of the institution. In our case, the cost was worth it, but in many cases it may not be worth it. Certainly shop around to various schools, so that you have a choice in both the nature of the education that your child recieves and the amount you are prepared to spend on it. Also, be aware that financial aid programs exist and can lighten the burden of an expensive private school tuition a great deal.
