My went there for 6 years. It has a great structure, and is very large and has a nice gym, cafe, etc. However the management is terrible. There are many teachers who are literally abusive, yet can't get fired if they worked there for 10 years. The chorus is terrible, singing songs in 5th grade that are made for 2 year olds, the attitude from facualty members are very bad towards the kids but transform once the parent is around, which myself and others have witnessed. I would'nt recommend it.
