    "Overall the school is a little above average. Its weakest point is probably the principal who does not teach the kids though. Therefore, it is not a big problem in the day-to-day life of students."

    "Top Notch School! My daughter was in a gifted and talented program She did extremely well and got lots of attention..As close to a private school without the expense."

    "The teachers and staff are extremely dedicated professionals. Smaller class sizes lead to lots of individual attention and guidance. The parent organizations are amazing! They fund-raise constantly!! Which allows them to offer/subsidize MANY after-school activities (chess, Lego robotics, golf, fashion, and many more!) and purchase items for various grades (white boards, cameras etc). The school offers hot lunches and after-care for an extra fee. As far as community goes, the town is primarily middle to upper class families - it's really a mix of everything. You've got the "dad's a CEO in NYC, mom's taking yoga classes while the kids are at school, then shuttles them around to ballet and tennis after school - all while wearing designer clothes, shoes and bag"...but you also have the dual-income families! The racial make up is predominantly white with a small percentage of Asians, and a minuscule percentage of anything else. The parents are extremely "cliquey" (usually with neighbors or with parents of other students in the same grade). However, as a new resident, and new mom to the school - when I approached people - they were extremely friendly!"

    "Good school. Involved and dedicated teachers. Good principal. Poor special needs services. There aren't many special needs children in the school. Not sure if they aren't integrated or if the school doesn't accept many special needs children? Very few after school activities. Small classes which is excellent. Not very culturally diverse. Would have liked it to be more diverse. Overall kids are happy. Will rate the school with 3 stars because of poor special needs services and inclusion."

    "Very clicky surroundings. Values are diversified, not consistently on the high end. Not the kindest atmosphere to raise youngsters, however the minors may dismiss some obvious parental materialism. Education is very good. Some very diverse creativity among the few. Physical and creative arts need support since they are excellent. Transitional adventures seem for some to be in deficiency. Some parents are generous with their hearts and many with their time or wealth. Teachers are admirably performing, plenty are excellent. No child left behind do not miss the train."
