i went to school here when i was younger. I went from kindergarten to grade six. I felt like it was a great school from kindergarten to grade five but when the middle school came around it seemed too stressful. The teachers some times didn't know how to teach and gave a lot of homework and i worked from 2 to 8 and couldn't finish it. I just think that some people can't handle too much work at such a young age. Great school but wasn't for me. I would recommend it for the people who need a challenge.
A mixed bag of teachers...some fantastic and some dreadful! Administration is the real problem at this school...the principal is not held accountable and does not act on poor teachers or trouble students - especially if the trouble students are children of the resident mothers who are at the school almost 24/7. Seriously lacking in sports, language, the arts, technology and music programs. Very poor communication.
The school is well organized during am drop off and pm pick-up. There is a teacher who has no patience with young students. Music dept is lacking. Some parents participate in school activities, but not a large amount. Not much for the kids to do at recess.
Excellent school, dedicated teachers, wonderful and supportive parents! No problems within classrooms, no disipline problems, lots of respect, kindness and wonderful environment!!! The best kept secret in this area!!! Glad my kids are part of it!! Top Notch school!!!
