Editorial Reviews

Review

"Recent graduates who are now attending prestigious colleges, such as Harvard, Yale, MIT, Oxford, and Cambridge, provide anonymous and candid opinions of their alma maters... Prospective students will be fascinated by the candid observations of their peers. The book's unique approach makes it a worthwhile purchase."
Clarion Review


"Parents and potential students will be thrilled with this independent guide showcasing the perspectives of former students who have gone on to brighter things." - Kirkus Review

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
If you are the parent of a child whom you are considering sending away to boarding school you owe it to that child to go to boardingschoolsurvivors.co.uk and/or look up "boarding school syndrome" on Google. There is growing and convincing evidence that sending children away from their families to boarding school, and especially children under the age of 13, can do lasting psychological damage.

How do I know? I am one of those damaged children still struggling with issues of trust and intimacy at the age of 50. The schools deny that there is a problem, saying that they are mush pleasanter places than they used to be, but it is the separation of young children from their families that does the damage. Also, many boarding school survivors are loath to admit to their problems, but their spouses or ex-spouses will confirm the symptoms.

Fair, it didn't have as many boarding schools in the northeast ear as I would have liked. It was a good read but needed more schools.
