"A college prepatory school that appears to have the reputational edge among its primary competitors. Research shows that this is because of the combination of academics, ethics, athletics, and spiritual platform that the school emphasizes. It also has a level of panache that its competitors (Landon, St. Albans, Gonzaga) strive to obtain. Each of these schools is excellent in their own right. However, GP has a reputation for having a bit more of the edge, perhaps due to the intersection of each of these previously mentioned attributes, that sets it somewhat above these other school reputationally. As a result, it invites editorial detraction and attacks normally reserved for a team ranked in the top spot."
Parent 1: I hear that Landon is one of the top schools in the area?
Parent 2: Yes, but if you are really shooting for the top, Georgetown Prep is the pinnacle.
