What a great place! They are amazing at discovering challenges, classes and extracurricular activities at the students love. A lot of happy challenged children running around.

Some extracurricular offerings are before school and others are taken as electives. There are a lot of clubs, but getting up early to go can get annoying. There are not many extracurriculars offered (aside from art, music, debate, etc.) until junior and senior, so choices are restricted, especially in the lower grades. Overall, focus is mainly on the five core classes, but it is easy to get involved in the extracurriculars.
