This is a wonderful school full of caring, helpful, educated, knowledgeable staff. They offer a wide range of extracurricular activities, academic studies and have a beautiful facility with horses. You are truly lucky if your child gets into this school. I am so thankful for all the care my child has received here.

Unfortunately, tremendous candidates can get bypassed because they were not able to demonstrate what they knew on test day.
