Review Guidelines


AdmissionsQuest school reviews function as a legitimate resource for families and students researching independent schools. Posting a review is limited to students and parents/guardians who attended or had a student attend the school within the last three years. Our goal is to have reviews provide feeling and insight into the school experience. Each reviewer is limited to one post at each school.

To insure appropriate tone and content, we require each author to adhere to the following guidelines:


Consider the review questions
Appropriate in tone; criticism is appropriate; bashing and ranting is not
Limit your review to only your experience
Well written with good spelling and punctuation


Personal Attack
Institutional Disparagement
Opinion presented at fact
Any false information
Using or disclosing your personal information

Examples of inappropriate comments include but are not limited to any writing that seems libelous, defamatory, indecent, vulgar or obscene, pornographic, sexually explicit or sexually suggestive, racially, culturally, or ethnically offensive, harmful, harassing, intimidating, threatening, hateful, objectionable, discriminatory, or abusive, or which may or may appear to impersonate anyone else.

AdmissionsQuest will not post any statement containing a threat of violence against a person or any other remark that would tend to be seen as intimidating or intends to harm someone. AdmissionsQuest maintains final editorial control over all submitted reviews. Reviews must evince appropriate tone and content. All submissions become the property of AdmissionsQuest which reserves the right to determine publication.

"Welcome to one of the most beautiful and historic college-preparatory boarding schools in the South. Now in our 105th year of service, Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School is a community of learners from around the globe. Our motto is Work Study Worship. In 2008 we are enjoying a sixth-consecutive year of record enrollment, with 357 students; 206 in the boarding division from 18 countries and 16 states.

100% of our graduates are accepted to colleges and universities. The class of 2007 had the highest average SAT score (1206) in the history of our School. I'm pleased to report the SAT average for the class of 2008 is on par with the strongest independent schools across the Southeast. We offer 15 AP classes." (John D.
