Supports LD students: Agree


- a
I have heard the dyslexia program is great.

Amount of homework: Neutral


- a
Who wants to work math problems? Get the kids to use their IB platform to come home with more interesting assignments that the family can explore together. But the homework that does come home, has not been too much.


Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
They definitely teach and the children learn, but I feel that they need to connect better to them. Kids spend more time in the classroom during the week than they do at home, and they need to feel valued as well.



- a
This school is run like an organized ship. I wish that the school supported a different environment where teachers nurtured the kids learning and made it more fun for the kids. There is a lot of pressure to learn and to preform. I get that, but I think the school needs more teachers who personally connect to the kids and bring out their unique abilities. I want my child to be encouraged, nurtured, and taught in a fun environment where they can blossom into an independent and inquisitive learner nd not just be another child in the class. The rigorous school work coupled with disciplinarian personalities just isn't for every child.

Develops character: Agree


- a
I feel that the school does a great job inteaching the kids about cultures and exposing them to the arts. The older kids have opportunities like to work at the school in the library and to be writing buddies to the younger kids. These things inherently teach responsibility and are awesome for the kids to participate in.


Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
If it happens on the playground, it's often overlooked. They are told to just not play together. If it happens in front of the teacher, they do tend to work things out using various methods. The school does work on things as a whole. The principal is very effective when things escalate.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
every single time a concern has been raised, the head of school has promptly and effectively dealt with bullying. I am so proud of the way its handled and I am very impressed with the unbiased approach by the head of school.

Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
I do not know since I lack exposure to students with learning differences. I only know what I experience with my kids.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Leadership at this school is extremely effective, fair, and genuine

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
my children identify strongly with the values espoused by the IB curriculum
