This is the best school ever!! Everybody is so nice here and there is no bullying at all. The kids are so nice and so are the teachers. It is always interesting and fun.

This is a wonderful learning environment with a challenging, yet appropriately individualized. The student body is diverse, so there are college bound students and some students who are vocationally geared. It isn''t the place for violent or aggressive kids and only the kids who really fit (and families) are retained. It makes for a cohesive environment and we are all working together. Great community!

Love, love, love this school! My daughter has blossomed there. She went from a very bad experience in public school, with bullying, teasing and the like, to this school where she is loved for who she is. She has many learning difficulties, but is doing very well. This is our fourth year at this school. This year she is in 9th grade. She is learning algebra, geometry and doing well with it. Her class is also currently reading Shakespeare and learning about US history. There are weekly math and spelling quizes. Homework is kept to a minimum. All the kids and teachers here are very kind and gentle. No bullying here!
