Amount of homework: Just right
Submitted by a parent · September 28, 2015
Communication is key. Some teaching teams are great in leveraging homework, while in others it is apparent that the team teachers need to be aware who's giving homework when. The principal has been open to rectifying the situation.

Develops empathy: Agree
Submitted by a parent · September 28, 2015
The school develops compassion and empathy in the community programs it offers to its students through various charitable fundraisers, participating in the community, and how to think from a global perspective, all a part of the IB Programme.
