The staff seems to lack in student and parental concern other than their A+ test scores. It is rush, rush, rush, all day long, not giving enough time for lunch, bathroom breaks, and questions needing answers. Expect to spend a LOT of home time on reading and doing homework. A bit part of learning is done AT HOME! LOTS of fundraisers which means LOTS of out-of-pocket expense!
Principal is very present, very accessible. Son's 2nd grade teacher is phenominal, however the system for gifted students is broken due to the problem of so many students below grade level. He has tested above the fourth grade in all areas but due to lack of spaces in the program, he is kept in the regular classroom where he is bored. His teacher tries to help but has more than 5 struggling students, so they are the priority.
