Overall
Avoid if your daughter has a learning disbility

This school discriminates against girls with learning disabilities. The teachers are not knowledgeable about using current practices to help children with learning disabilities and are unwilling to help the students by bending the curriculum to meet the needs of the students or using the recommendations of other professionals to help the students be successful. They are more than happy to show you the door so they do not have to change their current practices. In theory this is a great place if your child is gifted and has no learning difficulty (often these go hand in hand) because the teachers can only teach students who can teach themselves.
