In some respects this is an excellent school. But they are seriously lacking in preparation for high school math. They have outstanding English, science and social studies preparation. They also state they have a zero tolerance for bullying. Yet when a child or parent tries to report it or have bullying addressed it falls on deaf ears and nothing is done about it. They repeatedly told my child that they were a tattle tale and made them feel terrible for asking for help. I finally had to take the matter directly to the parents of the bullies to get my child some peace. So much of this school is quality but where they lack they lack enormously!
