Nice curriculum--not completely in place and still evolving--the teachers are still 'learning' how to implement it. Some can do it better than the rest. The teachers don't have much experience. Great parent involvement. Projects are set up to 'Ooooh and Aaahh' the parents, whereby many of the same things are done in public schools to less fanfare. If you have a child that is no trouble and a 'happy learner', then this is the school for you! Choose wisely before you enroll your child. The curriculum is accessible by all children, except when said child is not learning. Administration does not seem to have an understanding or be able to cope with kids that have issues like ADHD, etc. There is no support system as is routine in public schools. Parents are often blamed that they are not doing all they should be until the 'difficult' children are weeded out.
