    Back in 8th grade, when I had Mrs. Sauer as the IAS teacher, I was always insulted ("you put no effort into this assignment" for when I spent many hours and even days on) and got poor grades for no reason. But other than that, pretty good school.

    In all due respect Mr Finocchiaro, your son was the actual bully and continued to disrespect the students in his year who were so called by him 'poor'. This school, built on humble farmlands is a thoroughly enjoyable experience with the learning of life skills implemented in the criteria (age appropriate). The staff are always striving to get the best out of students pushing them academically and in the physical education. Note: Your use of ellipsis was incorrect and you failed to type it correctly. It is clear to me that your review was biased

    My wife and I came here on September 23, 2018 to support our son who was competing in the Kendo sport September 22-23, 2018. It has a great campus and judging from the choice of the venue, I believe it has a slant on sports. Without using Uber, our getting there and returning could be difficult!
