  • The staff is amazing and caring, my peers and I are thriving, the teachers care about you deeply, and want to make sure that you understand how to do something. Lot's of clubs and sports. Classrooms are relaxed, no desks only tables. Large spacious are to run around in, with a beautiful playground. Good amount of homework, but not to much, but not to little. Best school I have ever been too, will hate when I have to leave.
