What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
If you have a child with special needs or learning difficulties, DO NOT enroll your child in this school. Contrary to the school's philosophy, the school culture is not one of tolerance, compassion and acceptance. They seem like an inclusive school in their website, but don't be fooled. The community (parents, children) is very judgmental and intolerant of anyone who is different. The resource room staff is incompetent. The administration is NOT supportive at all, especially the Headmaster. It is ironic that this school operates in such a manner, given that the school is named after a man who promoted tolerance and compassion.
