What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
It is a Christian school, so Bible and chapel are required, but the faculty have a broad range of Christian beleifs, and many students are non-Christians, so there is openness to many faith stances. It also has very strong academics and is very demanding, especially in the upper grades.
