"We believe in Annie Wright and everything they have to offer students. The education is priceless and sets a standard above all others. Children are happy and happy children love to learn."
|Dr. Richard J. Light of Harvard University recently published a report describing five areas in which independent school graduates differ significantly from their counterparts from even the best public schools. Dr. Light found that independent school alumni were:|
- Significantly better in writing preparedness, especially with regard to research papers
- Much more likely to seek out advice from a faculty member
- Much more likely to choose the appropriate class level
- Much more likely to have better time management skills
- More likely to have a broader world view
