What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
It is a demanding school academically and you have to give up most evenings to homework. It has a small school feel although it is growing and that is good and bad--hard to break in and yet a bit hard to make friends. Teachers are supportive of kids but grades are competitive.
