[edit]

OK. Below is some of the stuff I cut out with my comments in brackets. I don't have time to mark it all up, but I suspect the main idea will be apparent.

Small class sizes and individualized attention ensure that each and every student has the opportunity to explore his or her potential for academic success. [says who? the school? writing the article from the school's point of view does not conform to WP:NPOV. cite this claim from an indpendent source or lose it] Students are challenged at all levels from PS through grade 12 with a curriculum that is vertically aligned in all academic subjects so that each grade is an extension of the prior year and a foundation for the next [again, says who? and why is this important? why shouldn't the article read "Students coast through their classes at all levels..."].

This paragraph was chock full of "point of view" statements. Comments are in brackets.

The upper school program at The Cambridge School is designed to polish [why not "erode"?] students’ skills and empower them to be [why not "discourage them from being"] autonomous learners. Enhancing the curriculum [why not "cluttering up the curriculum"] are twelve Advanced Placement courses available in math, science, history, English, and psychology. With 100% college acceptance among its graduates as the long-established standard [this statement might be significant enough to be in the article, but it needs to be clarified, does this mean 100% of the school's graduates have been accepted to a college? to every college they applied to? or that the school merely hopes that 100% of its graduates attend college?], the upper school academic program offers students a premier [why not "passable" or "laughable"] college-preparatory education.

The rest of the stuff I removed had the same problems. There were some assertions of importance in the music and athletics section, so if those can be cited, reinsert to the article. The Admissions Process section makes this look like an admissions guide, not an encyclopedia, and probably has no place in the article. Rest assured, if someone is interested in applying to the school, they can find the admissions procedure on the school's website.

Fair use rationale for Image:TCS Crest.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:TCS Crest.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.
