The philosophy of this school is theoretically perfect but it is very poorly executed and practically impossible to implement. Our daughter attended for 2 years and greatly benefited from the English-Social Studies programming. However her STEM needs were at a higher level than the school could handle and she suffered academically during those 2 years. Classroom management is poor and inconsistent as the teachers are overwhelmed by a few student's behavior. The principal is smart but she struggles to deal with the high level challenges. The idea of female focused school is powerful but our media makes it impossible to shield the girls from the sexualized messaging to our youth. The school attempts to discuss these messages but they seem imprinted on the too many girls before they have entered. The issue that really pushed us away was the disregard for parents. The administration made changes to curriculum and school calendar without input from the parents. The parents were expected to volunteer and do duties as requested without input.
