Review comments


Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
The vast majority of teachers seem passionate about their subjects and excited to teach the kids

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
The school has academic support classes where children can work on their homework with a teacher present so they can get help or ask questions. To me this is an excellent provision and minimizes the amount of homework children have to work on in the evening so they also have time to be kids, which I believe is very important for overall development and encouraging children to actually enjoy school


Develops character: Agree


- a
The school has zero tolerance of bullying and building kindness and respect in its students. All the children I have met have seemed very friendly and respectful. When my child had an issue with another student the school quickly resolved the situation



- a
Generally it's the parents who have an axe to grind who comment. The lack of comments show most parents are very happy with this school! I for one think it's great. Tiny class sizes, lots of attention from teachers. Efficient teaching methods leading to minimal homework so kids also have time to be kids. Strong science and math spike. My child has excelled in this environment. All the kids seem friendly and happy, which in itself is a good endorsement.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
2 or 3 good teachers, otherwise poor quality. Some teachers struggle to understand and teach the full curriculum to the students


Develops character: Disagree


- a
The school staff, teachers and administration show inconsistent treatment of students. Guidance counsellor is ineffectual



- a
Poor teacher investment in children. Selective curriculum adherence by teachers Minimal engagement with parents Inconsistent following of school procedures
