This is a great school no doubt about it- unfortunately, there are many kids who are underprepared for it- I think many parents these days think that just because they can afford to live here that their kids should all be successful in school as well- however that is not how it works in the real world- not everyone should get a gold star, extra cookie at lunch, special treatment, etc. Based on some of the comments below, it seems to me that parents need to do a better job of parenting and taking responsibility for their children instead of doing what many do these days and that is to pass the responsibility off on others (schools, teachers, etc.). When I was growing up, there were plenty of people who stole, bullied, dealt drugs, etc. What else do you expect? There is money here and kids will be kids! It is no different anywhere else affluent or otherwise- some better, many much worse. The difference is that with our generation I think we were MUCH tougher than today's kids- and I think that is because 'parenting' has changed. Kids no longer have the ability to stand up for themselves, they are whiny, spoiled, not accountable for their actions, etc. Glad I am an adult now.
