My son goes to this school and loves it. They have so many extra-curricular activities for the kids. In 7th grade they even have a culinary class/kitchen to teach the kids how to cook. All the teachers really take the time to make sure the kids excel and do well in class. I'm not sure about the previous review stating they have to use drawstring bags. My son and all the other kids I've seen use regular book bags.
