Great school

My son has been at this school for only one year so far and even though some teachers are strict in the way they teach, I have to say that my son has learned alot about being more independent and his work have improved. I also like the safety I feel of leaving my son in this school. The only thing missing are more creative school trips museums farms etc would be great! But overall a good school. Thank you.

The teachers and faculty in this school are not helpful when the children are having a problem in a particular area of study. Their first instinct is to assign the child to special education, instead of working with the child in order for them to excel in their studies. They give up on their children.
