I looked on their website (forgot which, I did a search), and I read some essays written by teens who had gone through the school, and while they all claimed to have been 'freed' up, and empowered by the experience ( a good thing), they also were not writing to well...

What exactly are Sudbury Valley Schools?
I have not yet visited one- the closest school is still quite far and am wondering if anyone has first hand experience, or has read extensively about the realities of SV school life.

Their academics are fine and I know they are thriving socially but there is still that nagging doubt.... Some parents and a few teachers are thinking of putting together a mini university type schedule for kids 12 and older next year. Not a heavy, homework thing but a more subtle reminder of what they can expect should they choose to go on to university. Anyone have any experience with anything like this?
