The teachers try to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the individual student to provide them the best curriculum or place them into the right level of lectures.
The teachers are all very vested in the success of the children. When my son was having problems with some of the material he received extra tutoring that helped him expand his skills. The administration keeps an open line of communication and they are very responsive to questions or concerns.
My son is a first grader. He has incredibly improved in all areas since August. The class size is perfect. He loves going to school because the whole environment is very easy-going, diverse and friendly. The school lets the kids accelerate at their own level.
