Quality of teachers is poor - they have a very pious attitude toward children and parents. ANY school that would allow a teacher who says "shame on you" to their students on a regular basis to continue teaching is absolutely unethical. As well, this school has extreme bias against boys and children who have come from any other school district. None are as good as their district and they make the children pay if they come from another district. They really have no interest in the children's well being - it is just all about meeting their "extremely high" standards.
