Last week we presented an in-depth profile on one of the top boarding schools in the nation: the Lawrenceville School. Princeton and Lawrenceville graduate Amogha Tadimety now shares her perspective on this private school that provides “the best of both worlds” to motivated high school students.

The Lawrenceville School: In-Depth School Profile
Five miles south of Princeton, sprawling across a pristine, rural 700 acres in central New Jersey, is the Lawrenceville School. A prestigious boarding school founded in 1810, the Lawrenceville School was proud home to graduates Malcolm Forbes, economist George Akerlof, and musician Huey Lewis, and ranked number fourteen in the 2010 Forbes survey of America’s Best Prep Schools. With a relatively small student to faculty ratio, generous financial aid, and a unique House System and Harkness Teaching model, the Lawrenceville School is an attractive choice for high school students intent on developing “high standards of character and scholarship, a passion for learning, an appreciation for diversity, a global perspective, and strong commitments to personal, community, and environmental responsibility.”
The Lawrenceville School will be the first profile in my new series investigating the private and public high schools of Mercer County.
