This school gives a great opportunity for kids to be independent and for working with a group. They also provide a good amount of homework that is on the harder side but it makes you think and if you try you can get it done.They also have things like Spanish, German, Art, P.E, Band, Guitar, Choir, and Orchestra. IF you are very smart in the math world they will bump you up so that you have a good challenge no matter what, and even better the teachers are awesome!! When you leave you are ready for anything that comes your way.
