Don’t sleep on the public schools

My son went all the way through STAB. My daughter bailed and went to Monticello for high school. I was way more impressed with the teachers at Monticello than STAB. For instance, her AP Modern European History teacher is one of the National AP test graders. Her French teacher was amazing and led a trip to France.
Stepsons went to Western Albemarle. Also very impressive. They consistently get kids into great schools.
The other benefit is the experience of a broader cross section of society. Covenant is a great school but a bit cocoonish.
If I had it to do over again, I would have done elementary private, public the rest of the way.
My 2 cents.
