Don't send your 6th grader here. Our daughter had a good experience in 7th and 8th so we thought our 12 yr old would too. The 6th grade teachers are terrible. They don't like their students and have no skills or knowledge for their age group. They are not allowed into most of the extracurricular activities. The teachers who teach here don't bring their kids here for sixth - thats a clue.
