    "Kids are not taught respect, humility, or kindness. Lots of bullying (psychological) which the school deals with very badly or not at all. Kind of a survival of the fittest attitude for social stuff. Academics of course really good though sometimes too unstructured, but social environment not good even at younger ages."

    "This school initially seemed like a lovely place and the teachers are in fact quite good. However, it suffers from a huge degree of arrogance, smugness even. The super rich have a big influence -- parent get togethers aren't potlucks but $40.00 at the door per person events with fancy catering and booze (and those aren't school fund raiders). The school has brains but lacks heart and soul. Progressive teaching environment works well for middle of the road kids, but can feel chaotic or even boring for others. Better than some other center city options, but some humility and warmth would be nice."

    "Excellent school. My son loves it! He has learned so much in only few weeks. The entire team is just so professional that I have not words. Each child is different and unique, the teachers confidently learns each student needs and guide them in the right direction. The thinking process is stimulated and creativity is #1. Overall we are confident that made the best choice for our son."
