Fantastic school. I know all the members of administration (we go way back) and their style is compatible with that of my own. Perhaps I am biased, as I am a member of the board on an advisory capacity. One issue I have is that the punishments are sometimes too harsh and unjustified . Overall lovely school. I plan to send all my children here soon
