I would definitely recommend Annunciation Orthodox School. I have not heard very good things about Duschene Academy, but I have about AOS. AOS has good athletic opportunities as well as artistic opportunities. Have you considered St. John's, Kinkaid, River Oaks Baptist, Presbyterian?
The schools pretty much rank in this order, especially academically:
1. St. John's (SJS)
2. Kinkaid (KHS)
3. River Oaks Baptist (ROB OR ROBS)
4. Presbyterian (PS)
5. Annunciation Orthodox School (AOS)

I wish you luck; feel free to dm me if you would like

Thank you. We are gonna apply St.John's next year. We really don't like Kinkaid, one of the family member was a teacher there. We also tried ROB twice, but didn't get accept.

If she's 4, what grade is she going to?
St. John's will be hard if your child didn't get into ROB.

How about Presbyterian?

Hi, I have one daughter in Duchesne now and another one that graduated. Duchesne is a very hard academic school and their goal is to educate your daughters and get them into a very good University or College. Kids that graduate from Duchesne have been accepted at all the Ivy League Universities in the country including West Point with 4-year scholarships. The school is also very technologically advanced.

Yes their sports is not tops when compared to the other schools on that list but they do have sports and also a Robotic Team that competes Internationally. Over the years several girls have gone on to win tops sports awards in the state. They also have a very fine Fine and Performing Arts program.

There is allot of homework even when they go out for sports or the Arts. This is not an easy school.

If you want more information please let me know.

Mark

But there is NO doubt whatsoever that AOS has a bigger name in the community, and the socialite families would rather their kids to AOS, ROBS, PS, SJS, and KHS then to Duschene

Duchesne goes through HS and we have our share of "socialites". It all comes down to why you send your child to private school vs public school, to get a great education, and to give your child a head start in life.

Welcome to Houston and whatever school your daughter goes to I'm sure will be fine.

Yes, but there is no doubt that not NEARLY as many kids graduate from Duschene and go to the Ivy Leagues...
Look at the statistics:
Duschene: http://www.duchesne.org/html/SchProfile2011.pdf
St. John's: St. John's School ~ Matriculation
Kinkaid:http://www.kinkaid.org/uploaded/Abou...profile-v2.pdf

I am sorry to say this, but there is no doubt in the community that SJS and Kinkaid are better schools than Duschene and AOS is too..... AOS kids usually go to EHS/SJS/KHS

Wouldn't it be interesting to see where the girls from those schools were accepted and enrolled.
