Great school! The Mandarin Chinese language immersion program is exceptional and unique! My son has excelled in this program and in no way has experienced a division from the other classes. It is Chinese half day, then regular classes the other half. Overall great teachers and learning environment!
They now have a Mandarin Chinese immersion program. While it may be great for those in the program, it has created a division within the school. The half in the Chinese program do not associate with those not in it. It is really pretty sad. We opted not to enroll in the program for various reasons but my 2nd grader has only 3 boys he plays with at school. Even still, I am glad he is not in the program. We will use a boundary exception and move schools if it gets any worse.
This school historically is a difficult school for new students. Many parents with children in the school express problems with cliques and bullying. Many former and current students express the same problems. I am actively searching for a better school for my children.
