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.
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!
