No school is perfect, never has been, never will be. Not every student will fit in. Not every teacher will cater nor will or should they baby or favor ANY student. Bullies are at every school. I have found balance & objectivity for both teachers & students. When my children have had difficulty in any subject either a teacher or the administration has reached out & communicated with me. They try to balance Academics, Arts, and Athletes to meet all students need & desires. It's not easy to have so many high scores on SAT & stretch such a small budget on so many activities, but they do it. It IS a GREAT school system.

I have been bullied for the past 2 years and nobody has done anything about it. Please don't send your child to this school. Many of my friends have moved schools because of bullying. If you want your child to succeed this school is not in the best interest for him/her.

This school will not look outside of any box. They way they teach and manage is THE way and nothing else is possible. If you want your kid to get attention and if you want teachers to be interested in you kid and his learningproces dont send him or her to this school. The school and his teacher are pessimistic and stubborn.
