Some bright spots: good teachers who embody the qualities they advertise, low student to teacher ratio, excellent sports opportunities for all and great fine arts program.

My children were both victims of bullying at other schools. The Quaker values and educational style were great fits for them. The culture of the school is the most tolerant and caring I've ever encountered. The student body is incredibly diverse. There are kids from many different countries. There ...  Read more
