If you fit this school's narrow world view, you may excel and love it. But if you have hopes of going to a decent university, this is not the school for you. The school actively discourages students from pursuing a good higher education and finding a fulfilling career. If your only goal in life is to find a husband (or son-in-law), this is the school for you. The secular curriculum is acceptable, though lacking compared to any public school. The choice of extracurricular activities is pathetic. You can do community service or participate in the school's annual production. That's it. No music, no clubs. The school only offers the minimum state mandated PE, so there is no physical activity at all past 10th grade.
The school gives great academic preparation and has loads of extracurricular activities.
I think that the girls have to memorize too many dates & details, and that many of the teachers & administration lack sensitivity to the girls needs..Time for a change. It should've been a thriving school by now!
As an alumnus of the school, I can tell you that it really prepares you for the future. It has a great curriculum, dedicated teaches, and a wonderful environment!
I think it is a fabulous school with wonderful teachers. The students score highly on all state mandated tests which is a reflection of the rich curriculum.
I think this school is very strict, and at the same time it has a very good education system! it also has great extracurricular activities!
