    Great program for the right "rule-following" child. No talking in the halls for example whispering perhaps). Very strict and regimented. Many high energy kids- mostly boys -are stunted and suffering as there is no outlet for their energy. Not the right fit for many students. Teachers run the ship and expect parents to shoulder much of their administrative work. Also they cannot seem to find a long- term principal.

    We feel so fortunate to have this excellent program available to our children. They are learning fluent french while still mastering English math music etc. They also enjoy their school day and seem invigorated when I pick them up each day. Parental involvement at this school is huge and the teachers are fantastic.

    Great school and a wonderful opportunity for my daughter to learn French fluently. Even immersed in French the students still excell in English and Math.

    The French Immersion program has been wonderful for my children. Each classroom has a student teacher that is a native speaker for at least a portion of the year. It was a more difficult academic experience for my son than my daughter.
