A school where teachers have additional care and responsibility which forms a bond between the student and teachers which creates a healthy relationship between the students and their peers. Parents if not sure about this from what you heard or have been told just keep in mind of your childs success not other peoples insurcurities by a school that is diiffert and widely diverse. Have a great day!
