As a parent, we are thrilled with the academic rigor and the level of engagement all students enjoy. The facilities are exceptional, and the support for the whole child is ever-present and authentic. Our daughter is enjoying a diverse group of friends, and has been able to grow strong leadership skills both in and out of the classroom. The arts programs are amazing!
I hated the school. There are drug problems everywhere, the faculty has an extremely high turnover rate, and sometimes students are unjustly targeted because some teachers dislike them. The sports programs have also dropped significantly, and the arts, which rile up no school spirit and attract social pariahs unwilling to connect with the rest of the school. The winter semester also brings severe seasonal blues felt by many students, bringing disciplinary infractions up.
