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

Be:

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

Avoid:

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.

History

Foxcroft School was founded in 1914 by Charlotte Haxall Noland, who directed the School until her retirement in 1955. Miss Charlotte, as she was called by her students, valued determination, courage, and character. She established a school that would instill in its graduates high purpose, leadership, integrity, and understanding. A new generation of faculty members and students continue this educational tradition under the leadership of Mary Louise Leipheimer, Head of School since 1989.
