My experience overall has been rather ordinary. Overall I'm content with my high school experience, but it could have been a lot smoother.

This school is excellent if your student is willing to work independantly and take additional classes outside of the HS. The IB program is fast paced and if you do not have additional coursework outside of school, it will be a struggle to maintain. The instructors expect the students to have this material already learned.

What makes this school unique is the sense of home that most acquire before they leave. If you put yourself out there, you're bound to be recognized
