School Reviews

I went to this school for 6th and 7th grade and have mixed feelings about it. On one hand the academics were great. The teachers however never really taught us and just handed out worksheets without telling us anything about what we were learning. If your child is a huge fan of sports and competing then this is the school for you. This school is obsessed with sports and almost all attention goes to competing with other school. This school does not focus on the arts however. Most of the arts programs, other then dance, are sub-par. Dance is great but the school does not care about it. For me this school was way to obsessed with sports and competition.
