High in academics but character development is low. Many kids have serious self esteem issues and the homework load is unbelievable even in the earliest years. While the HW policy is grade level + 10 minutes (eg, 1st grade is 20 min, 4th grade is 50 min, etc) the teachers seem incapable of controlling that.
