I can't believe that this school has a five-star rating on other sites. This school is a mess. They are completely profits over quality, and they are constantly firing and hiring staff in order to get the most out of them for the least work. There are some honestly great teachers, but they suffer due to the poor quality of management and overall attitude to decisions. They have problems with punishment and controlling bad behavior, because they don't have a secure punishment system. If you or your child is either ahead in learning or behind, there are very limited options for you. Personally, I have had issues throughout the whole of my upper school experience because my lessons are not challenging enough. The school constantly tries to extort money from the parents in any way possible, and has preference for parents who fund their efforts. Many good staff have resigned from the school because they are overworked and underpaid. If a student has issues, they often try to blame the student or the parents, instead of taking affirmative action to solve the issue. They put most of their budget into advertising and getting the school into the public eye, instead of improving their awful curriculum. The sports options are very few, the arts programs are nonexistent, and there is no clear structure to learning or testing. The worst part is that the students are restricted from giving their honest opinion to visitors, so that potential students are mislead about pretty much everything in the school, from classes to social events to rules. Everything that the students say is monitored to make sure that they are only saying positive things about the school, and if they say anything negative, they are punished. They purposefully segregate students who are leaving from the visiting students so that their view of the school isn't "tarnished". I know that you have to take every opinion on the internet with a pinch of salt, but please do not put yourself through this horrible school!
