School Reviews

Overall experience lower school is just as bad as a public school. the treatment of children is only good if your parents give them money and give more money so staff can drive luxury cars. the headmaster k-6 hates men as she failed in her own marriage and now takes it out on fathers. This school has an effective approach to homework.they strive for a good balance of home life and homework teachers at this school are effective. some hit students and some are compassionate and there for the passion of teaching. This school develops strong character in its students, like integrity, compassion, and respect. starts at home, the school has contradicted or alienated my kid so they have learned hypocrisy and poor leadership for the school Also a good teaching tool. Leadership at this school is effective.administration in lower school elementary is a sexist who will mistreat your child if she doesn't like you. send her staff after them. forces group supremacy and thievery. forces patches to be worn on the left shoulder like Nazi Germany when other places are better suited but teaching group supremacy it is key to mimic the examples. This school effectively deals with bullying. they say they do but action and the bullying from staff and administration say otherwise. it is do as I say, not as I do culture
