Most of the teachers here are very professional, honest, caring people who are passionate about teaching. My son has gone there for 3 years and is moving on to HS next year.

The school is better than other schools, but might not be worth the transportation hassle if your neighborhood school is above average. I think the work, especially in 7th/8th grade can be more challenging since the work is the same as in other schools. The teachers are ok at best. I've had 3 children

This school does prepare them for the IBHS programs, but many have to take remedial classes or reviews in the summer to get them caught up. Of all the 8th grade teachers, there is only three that we can say are truly top of their game when it comes to teaching. They are the science, inquiry skills and history (he no longer works there, but in the hs program) teachers. The rest seem to think that either teaching isn't important or would rather do projects/babysit. Read less
