Not a surprise to see Hutchinson on there since Gardenhill prepares them very well.

Yes, Gardnhill does a great job but the teachers at Hutchinson work extremely hard on behalf of their students giving countless hours of before and afterschool tutoring. Hutchinson deserves the credit for what students have achieved after elementary school.
