What Our Students, Parents, and Teachers Say

We survey our community every year to help us understand the perspective of our diverse constituents and find ways to improve the school for everyone. In May 2017 the surveys were done by NEASC/CIS as part of our accreditation process. Here are some comments from our parents, students and teachers who completed the survey:

“Giving pupils the tools for discovery and self-improvement. Challenging them to achieve and get out of their comfort zone. At the same time academic rigor and curriculum is fulffilled.”

“The school has a more open way of learning which allows the students to direct their own learning while at the same time allowing proper work to be made. Furthermore the school has a more open environment which means that there is more transparency in our learning process whereas other schools keep that relatively restricted to simply receiving a grade.”
