I did search and didn't find any postings from current students or recent alumni of Adler. I want to know their take on the school, not people that have applied and were accepted but have not matriculated yet. Thanks for the data from Adler. I knew I had found it once on their website, but couldn't find it again. Their placement rates are pretty atrocious

This question needs clarification. What is this person seeking?


If you are looking for strong academics virtually every prep school, in New England or elsewhere, offers some advantage over a public high school.


There are many schools that carry a certain level of prestige and cachet in social circles. Some of the most notable are Phillips Exeter, Philips Andover, St. Pauls, St. Marks, Groton, Middlesex, Deerfield, Choate Rosemary Hall, Taft, Kent and Hotchkiss. Most of these schools are members of either the Independent School League based primarily in the Boston area or the Founders League based largely in Connecticut.


This varies by year. Each school's web site will usually list college placement for the prior year or two.


Many students choose New England prep schools for their athletic programs. They offer some sports that are rarely found in public schools such as lacrosse, squash and crew. Also, many of these schools have outstanding rink facilities and excellent hockey programs. The Founders League in particular has a high level of competition. Of those schools one stands out for having won eight New England division one prep championships, Avon Old Farms.
