The teachers are patient and make a great effort to help the students learn the material. They have after-school tutoring and the students find that they are respected and cared for. They aren't just machines that need to be fed information. Even disruptive student are treated respectfully and with due diligence. The curriculum is challenging and appropriate for each and every level of intelligence.
