My kids love the school. But, If your kid has a learning disability. Plan on just teaching them yourself. They have a tendency to hold kids back rather than addressing issues. Even after a professional diagnosis, they will refuse to acknowledge the issue and the diagnosis. I think it's a good school for younger kids. But follow the lead of others and leave by 5th grade. VERY few kids in the graduating class. I think 8 last year. So 35 kids in the kindergarten to 8 in 12th and the graduates didn't have the math for college. Yeah.....no
