What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
This school is a properly run school in that it requires the students to comply properly with discipline - unlike most other private schools here.
The teachers are excellent and the school has a good, varied curriculum strong in sciences. It offers a two-year prepa.
Most importantly it is a LAY school - not religious - so there is none of the time-wasting religious ritual found at some other schools.
