Posted August 4, 2007

This school manages to pull up students from multicultural backgrounds away from regular public schools peer pressure and provide a favorable educational environment free from parent student tensions. It demolishes the wall that is easily created between kids and their parents due to immigrants not knowing the polarity of their new social culture and interpreting it within the boundaries of their old culture. The school allows parents to participate freely in school decisions
