I really like the school, and all of the teachers have been very nice. However, it is just not for our son at all. It is a very, VERY fast paced school... and it is very hard to keep up with. Even for me, coming from the world of finance and attention to detail, there is so much. My son comes from public schools where he was bullied horribly and his confidence levels are very low. The pace is simply too much for him and we ended up being more stressed out than before. I am now adopting a curriculum more tailored to his individual needs and pace, and I'm nervous. How do we know that we are teaching them the right things? I am terrified that he will simply not be learning something that is essential.
