    Featured Review: Parent says I am not going to sugar coat my review because it doesn't help a parent that is going to spend money to send their kid there; so here it goes. (1) The Distinguished Scholars Program and High Honor classes are very good. (2) The teachers are good and help kids when needed. (3) The general classes have much to be desired. Kids laugh about getting bad grades and spend a lot of time on their phones (TikTok, Snap Chat etc.) and it is hard to learn in those classes. Even...(4) A lot of kid's think everything is racist. They will label it on everything.(5) The women at ND that handles the admission process is the nicest and is very helpful. She is a pleasure to deal with and will make the process go smoothly. (6) The school needs to work on the character of these kids. Social skills, kindness = D!.
