Kids at this school have incredible access to top quality fine arts programs. Every kid plays an instrument. The school even has a chess program! Many of the classes include innovative professional / community based curricula that really stimulates kids. In general the school (and the district) is what you make of it - every year many kids go to Ivy League schools but apathy is also common. My kid loves his teachers and misses being in school after just a couple days of vacation.
