My child is challenged and supported. She's strengthening her interpersonal skills as well as her academic ones. The staff and faculty are warm without ever mollycoddling the kids. And we're very, very excited about the new head of school.
Uncertified teachers making things up as they go with no oversight, especially since they board fired the only head of school who got anything done around there. Those teachers are a joke to anyone in the profession. Especially the "social studies" teacher, the math teacher, and that random actor guy they've got teaching "Spanish" class.
Determination to get out of that ridiculous school maybe. There's no academic rigor. The teachers make up the curriculum entirely. Very few of them have current or any teaching licenses and that's a fact you can check yourself.
They talk a big game but it's just a bunch of spoiled kids with entitled rich parents when it gets down to it. I see plenty of kids crying at the end of the day and wanting to go to the public school with their real friends.
