We have had an excellent experience so far with our two children in 1st grade and PS. The teachers and curriculum are excellent, as is the individual attention. The administration really listens and reacts. After school activities are a strength. The parent community is great.
It isn't a bad school, especially in lower school, but I just don't think its
a great school, especially in middle school. As a middle school student I notice that many of the teachers are not as good in their subjects as I would expect and my peers know it and can feel bored. Some even barely ahead of the students. Sometime the teachers are even corrected. Many projects also drop out of the blue and side track our classes. The tech is cool, but a lot of it is not put to its full potential. The administration was just changed, and I haven't really got the full feel of them yet, but I don't think it will have much of an effect. Over all, its not a bad school, but there are many places nearby that I think look better.
