Absolutely the administration is responsive and positive. The admin and teachers all work closely together, and act as the kids' biggest chearleaders. I have frequent informal chats with our teacher and the principal, and they respond to email within an hour every time. They are always communicating about ways to work through the daily challenges of school and life. We have not had discipline issues, but I know the school's philosophy is deeply rooted in creating an environment of mutual respect and kindness among the students, and it shows in the friendships and cooperation among the students.
