Pros 1. Small class size (16-22 in the lower grades) 2. Well funded compared to other public schools. The school asks for a hefty donation from each family at the beginning of the year and most families comply. Cons 1. Lack of before/after school care- If you are a dual income family be prepared to STRESS like no other on what to do with your child while you work especially after school and during the summer. The only option right now is to be bussed to the community center which closes at 5 and very few children do it. 2. Lack of differentiation- I agree with previous posts that teachers have low tolerance for children who are "out of the box." Same with bright students- they will likely get bored. 3. Ipads- I wish it would serve a more useful purpose than to "babysit." Parents spent so much money on these and students are playing games while the teacher focuses on a small group of students. In regards to Stepfordville to each his own. We are a dual income family drive Hondas and buy our kids backpacks and clothes from Target and Old Navy. Yes we go here too (maybe we can form a group?). We are happy with our frugal and minimalist lifestyle.
