I heard this was a great school and the curriculum is. The staff... yes, they are great if you come from money or your child has been attending since kindergarten. My child was harassed by bullies and we were told by the faculty that they only believe the students that have been there longest and that new kids are usually the trouble makers. My once very happy 9 year old who loved school is a severely depressed child who now believes no matter how hard she tries, not only the mean girls but the teachers hate her. The principal never responded to my concerns over the pack of girls that bullied her and sent her into a depressed girl with suicidal thoughts. The Gym teacher made her run on a 100 degree day when she had bronchitis and she was weezing.
