The school accepts students with varied academic backgrounds. The academics and discipline for the middle school are good, but I could not give the school an overall five star average, because of the lack of a PE class, other electives, and parental involvement. I know that teaching space is one of the problems that they face at the school, but it seems important to me to focus on the well-being of the whole child, not just academics and the brain. There are educational subjects that I learned during middle school (optonal school), that my child has not been exposed to yet in her two years there. They attempt to offset this by taking the students places and bringing people in to speak with them. I know that colleges focus on more than academics. The extra-curricular activities are not well put together ( some would rate 1-3), but they do improve yearly.
