High Peaks has been a great school for our kids - both of whom are good students. The teachers have always been thoughtful and understanding of our kids' different learning styles and personalities. Obviously, different teacher combinations with different kids have different results, and I've seen HP not be the best place for some kids - like almost every school. Great place for my kids though. Not sure what other parents expect, but in my experience, public schools have not been 1-to-1 education for either high achievers or low achievers. My son is in TAG and he's learning a lot, but obviously isn't being pushed to his limits, but is definitely being pushed. I appreciate the level of pushing, and want him to develop academically and socially, and I find that HP is doing a good, balanced job. My daughter is still too young for TAG, but seems to be getting the right amount of attention. We weren't looking or expecting private, prep-school education and we aren't disappointed, which for us, is perfect.
