I'd like to hear from people who have first hand experience with Menlo School. What are pros and cons of this school, apart from the obvious cost of $32,000/year. I went to open house and was very impressed by the faculty - they are top notch, they are well respected by both students and parents, they resemble me of Stanford faculty. The class size is small which allows for great interaction between students and faculty.
My concern besides cost is do they instill elitarian culture? Do the students think they are cream of the crop of society? How would a kid from a middle class family feel there among the upper class crust?
