    Teachers: The teachers are wonderful, they go beyond what is required of them to teach. They stay after school if there's a student who needs help with a particular lesson. They are simply the best.

    Administration & Policies: The staff at the school are very caring and want all students to succeed to their highest ability. They handle each situation to the best of their ability. The principals are very involved in the educational process. They almost never are seen sitting in a office, they are out speaking with the students. It is not unusual to have a principal join the class for a lesson.
