I do not know about the regular 'neighborhood' program at the school but the Continuous Progress track is amazing. They have class families that create bonds between different aged children. My son is able to keep the same teachers for all 5 years at school and has flourished from the experience.

The academics at this school are great. Some of the teachers are also great--but there are some very poor teachers at this school too. If you get one of the bad ones your child will have a tough year. Extracurriculars are good as is parent involvement.
