I really think that Piarist is the best high school in the region. Although it is "technically" a Catholic school and Catholic priests teach some of the classes, you wouldn't really realize it by the course load. Religion isn't taught by the school, not in an obtrusive or forced way, anyway. They do teach Latin, which I found the best part. Father Tom and Father Dave are the best teachers and role models...and they're pretty darn comical, too. I loved it!
