Have not had experience with this. Seems that the school has a zero tolerance and does not entertain the bullying one way or another nor gives it attention to create a victim or a bully. I agree with that stance on bullying and hoping what it seems to be is true. Bullying can overtake a school's attention and kill morale if it is fed enough attention. It seems to be nipped quickly or not happening regularly as the expectations from leadership is strong and prevalent in character throughout the environment.
They seem to care about the children's learning as if they were their own. They are passionate about your child's success and not interested in "playing the part" to parents. They are there for the kids. Dedicated.
Most of the homework is relevant to what needs to be engrained and prepped for what the children need to expect and learn before entering bigger and better things in life. Learning time management, parent involvement/engagement is encouraged as a proven approach to growing a successful child. The homework is a confidence booster.
This school has exceeded expectations year after year. From faculty to the family environment geared towards the kids needs. Every child in the upper classes that has come through OLA seems to be matured over public middle school children. From direct eye contact, confidence, strong, assertive mindful communication is what comes to mind with the kids I've seen coming from this school. You almost want to keep it a secret as it is like a hidden gem.
