    Don't go here! I'm telling you now I'm warning you! All the good teachers left and the new principle is very strict.The deans sometimes bully the kids when the deans think that the kids are doing something wrong. There is no clubs no doors in the classrooms in middle school level. The rooms are so hot during summer because there is no ac.

    I think to make a statement about a school having to many sticks because one kid got suspended for a 1 week for throwing snow.. when we do not even know the real story is a stretch. My husband is a high school teach and I can tell you that students lie/bend the truth all the time about what happened in incidents at school

    My son attended this school from kindergarten through middle school. He graduated with average close to 87%. In general I am happy with the school deans and teachers; however I noted a drop in school quality for past 2 years. I may be wrong but it seems that the school is being managed with constant threat of punishments rather than a combination of carrots and sticks! I had a hard time asking my son to maintain respect for school authority when he and some of his classmates were unjustly punished with one week of office detention for throwing snow at each other after school outside the school yard.

    This school is very organized the physical age-oriented classrooms distribution is remarkable. The entrances and exit for all kids are according to their grade/age. Children are learning starting from first day and are encouraged to do so.
