Meh. Very mixed bag with teachers... some are good some are really awful. Lots of worksheets. Rigid old-school top-down desks-in-a-row style and rules. The culture is friendly enough but there is a distinct divide between neighborhood and non-neighborhood families. No sense that this is intentional just reality. If you aren't a member of the MAC nor have the ability to hire tutors to supplement what your kids aren't getting in class then this may not be the place for you. Despite our child going there for a couple of years we never felt this was "our" school. If we could do a do-over we would have never enrolled our kid here. Spanish program is a plus but unfortunately over-rated too.
