We love the school! We had a very good experience during our three years there. The teachers we got were always great.

We were extremely disappointed with this school. Essentially all the work of teaching is done by parents and outside tutoring services. The teachers are all very young and inexperienced and teacher turnover is extremely high. They are very bad at identifying and deaing with learning disabilities -- perhaps due to their youth and inexperience. You may want to ask the administrators why there are 30 students in "regular" classes and twenty students in "gifted" classes. I feel this says something significant about their priorities and level of commitment to all students. Also, for a public school, many parents contribute a great deal of money and their children are treated better as a result.
