High rate of eating disorders. Social pressure may be challenging for some. The teachers are very good.
A nice school. We came from Europe and that was a very smooth transition for my son. Great teachers, nice atmosphere and good students. Strongly recommend the school!!!!
OMG. I went to this school for about 3 months and Imidetly left. I am a student with dyslexia and ADHD. They gave me no help. I had an IEP (individualized learning plan) and they still ignored it. All they did was just put me in a class with minimal help. They did not give me what I needed. They also LIED about how I was doing in class. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE IF THEY HAVE LEARNING DIFFERENCES. Another thing is bullying. I was buillied because I was "fat" and a bad basketball player. First of all, I made the team and I put so many hours into that game. Overall this school was so bad and I would not send your child here.
I read these reviews when we were looking for a house a few years ago and I have to say I feel snookered by these sunny (and frankly, delusional) assessments of the school. Most of the wonderful teachers mentioned here are no longer there. The school is a mess. Teachers are disorganized, overworked and uninspired. Look no further than the English and Language departments which have churned out all sorts of crazies in just the past two years. I honestly don't blame the teachers because even the best teachers wouldn't be able to function in such a chaotic environment. But whatever the reason, the end result is you have a subpar school that relies on parents and a privileged student body (that really would get the same test scores in any other school district) to create a veneer of quality and competence. After moving here, we moved our daughter to a private school where she is thriving. If you're only moving here for the good schools, keep looking or look into private schools.
