This school has gone down hill drastically lately. I have three children in the school in all sides of the school. The Headmaster has become increasingly driven by money almost to the point that many parents think they can buy a better grade by giving to the school. Actually the headmaster said at the Christmas show and auction that report cards are coming out and if you want a better grade you should pay up! My and my husband walked in there one day to check on our children to hear the teachers yelling at the kids, when we tried to go to a headmaster they are apparently to good to speak to the parents to so you have to go through their assistant. We have started to have many other issues and the administration never gets back to us, the one time they did they didn't seem like they cared. I think this is a school that has gotten so big that they forgot how they got there and we will probably continue to see things go downhill unless a change is made, specifically the headmaster. Don't think that the 8 on the great schools rating is because it is a great school, there are amazing parents that bring their smart children there.
