Yesterday, we took the TigerHawk Teenager to the University of Maryland for an "information session" and a tour of the campus. It is a pretty school, even on a bleak November afternoon. I took some pictures.
Testudo, he of the well-rubbed nose:
Fear the turtle!
As long as you're in the area, and presumably on your way to Charlottesville, you might drive by the Madeira School in Greenway, Va. (sort of between McLean and Great Falls). Excellent reputation, beautiful grounds, lots of horses, near (but not too near) DC. All-girls. Not really all that far from Princeton. I expect your daughter would be very happy there.
It may be pretty, but it's smack dab in the middle of the "People's Republic of Maryland," and in one of the worst counties of the area, Prince Georges County.
There's gotta be better (and safer) alternatives...
