I know threads have been posted about this place before, but I was just wondering what people thought about some of the things you can read about the place. I regularly check https://hackingattheroots.wordpress.com/ which is written by their French teacher. He always talks about the kids being in silence, eyes front, not talking to each other, etc. I just don't like the sound of the place to be honest. It sounds like a military boot camp. Kids get demerits if they utter a word to each other, at lunchtimes they have to discuss agreed topics and sit in a seating plan, and it's all didactic teaching according to that blog. What do others think? Anyone have any direct experience in the school itself?
