It's, in some ways, great that it's such a small school. It insures that every student gets an appropriate amount of attention. In other ways, it's not that great a school. They have no AP or honors classes, so there's not much they can do with gifted students. Also, because there are so few teachers, getting you're schedule together in a way that's optimal for both you and your teachers can be a challenge.
Very thankful to have found a school that allows for all different kinds of learners. It offers a diverse population of students and teachers. I little hidden gem.
