Description of service

I have just signed my son up to attend a private high school and just received our first tuition bill in the mail. The base tuition cost is $4,250. I knew this from the get go. However, the bill I just got in the mail was for a total of $5,000. I was shocked and appalled that the "extras" cost $750. Detailed on the bill, this includes 2 Freshman year retreats, sports fees for my son to play football and basketball, administrative costs and a processing fee.

Review of Service

I am very happy with the school thus far. It will provide my son with a quality education and will not only prepare him for college, but also help him get into the top universities in the country. In addition to the top notch education he will receive, I think that it will be great fro him socially as well. All of the kids seem to come from great families, and there seems to be a high level of inclusion in the school as a whole. I am very happy, and I believe that it is money very well spent.


My suggestion for parents looking to send their kids to rpivate school, is find out what the "extras" are and how much it will cost in total because all of the extra fees can definitely add up. Just ask questions!
