I have not one bad thing to say about this school, both of my children have/are a student here. My son now attends Mountain Ridge Intermediate school, he's an honor roll student and has been since coming to this school, my daughter who currently attends Gerrardstown School is also an honor roll student. It all depends on each child, every child learns differently, at their own pace, with that being said, don't blame the school in future posts for a child not progressing as you the parent believes that child should.
