Parent: Our son is currently in the 2nd grade. He has been at the school for two years, and it has been a wonderful experience. The enthusiasm of the teachers, who are truly experts in the subjects they teach, is infectious. They consistently set high standards for all students at every stage of their academic career. This is a school that prioritizes academics and the students themselves; it is targeted to students with intellectual curiosity and a strong work ethic. We are very happy here!

Alum: Many of the teachers there care deeply about education of students, and not just school work. The teachers want students to learn some life lessons, and try to include them into lessons as well. the school requires an intro to business and financial literacy course to be taken to graduate, which forces students to learn at least a little bit about the financial world. I also like how the school offers students a chance to participate in internships, co-op jobs, and college classes to further their education. This give students a chance to see what college and work life is like through their own eyes, not what they've heard. The school should include, if possible, more fun, but educational electives into the curriculum. I feel the inclusion of these electives would help students stay interested in school. Also, these electives would give students a chance to learn about a subject that they would be interested in majoring or minoring in.
