Idk what that other dude is talking about I love it here it's so welcoming and warm. Also, why did he give it 5 stars? Lol anyway, the teachers are very Kind. The music program is fantastic, giving people the chance to express their musicality. I for one play the saxophone and have made many friends playing the saxophone. I also slightly disfigured my back due to over bending while playing due to the music stands. Overall, it's pretty great.

I have learned absolutely nothing. 1/2 of the teachers are rude, and I will be switching to Wamogo next year. They have outstanding teachers and a great ag program, as well as wing a blue ribbon school. They are one of the best schools in Connecticut, unlike Litchfield.
