The school's insistence on this traditional framework of excellence, in many ways simple and straightforward, gives the curriculum distinction, and continues to be its first principle in planning for the future.

Compensation of $588,354 for Richard Melvoin? With 442 students and 70 faculty members, isn't that excessive? His compensation is higher than the Dean of Harvard Law, Dean of Univ. of Michigan Law, Dean of UVA Law and Georgetown Law. It is also higher than (according to this website) the Head of Phillips Exeter, Phillips Andover, Roxbury Latin, Groton School, and St. Mark's School. Plus, the Board of Trustees now wants parents to donate money to name a newly renovated building after Richard Melvoin. When does it end?
