This school is not perfect but nor are any others. The majority of the children are open minded to all different backgrounds and differences. I have 5 so I have been through each school, never have I not had issues that came up not resolved quickly and with good discussion.

If your child is an athlete and you prefer homogeneous groups and narrow-minded adults, then this is the school for you!
