Is a great school for who is lucky get a nice teacher, because if your kid doesn't like them so your done there, they gonna start make you believe that your kid is not at the level that they want it for the score 990. They dont stop until you move your kid to another school, all the time you gonna hear "Weaver is not for any kid" , is really sat that is a good school for score but not for to help kid success even the principal says that all the time. More important for them is make the score and their prestige, that's all.
