This is an amazing school. I am so happy with the expectations of my kids on all levels. I have loved all of their teachers. They go above and beyond to make sure our experience here has been and continues to be leaps and bounds above our public school experiences. Which have been with three different public schools in two counties.. those schools were no where near close to gd in all areas.

Full marks for facilities! But my daughter found it difficult to write at length even in Grade 4 as the school is too much dependent on gadgets and tablets. For those parents who have no qualms regarding writing, it is good but those who want their kids to be at par with other schools students, it is not a good choice.
