They teach children to take tests. While there are music classes they do not teach the children how to play their instruments or music theory. The level of bullying is beyond society's norm and the staff not only allows it, they bully the parents for having the nerve to voice their concerns. Also I have heard more than once parents being made fun of by the teachers and private matters being discussed in the lounge.
