Although this school is absurdly Conservative (they are one of the few public schools that wouldn't show the Obama Education speech and wouldn't supply a good reason even though they have a focus on Patriotism), they have a great program, have small class sizes, and make good use of technology, are understanding of kids' individual needs, and have a high degree of parent involvement.
