All children want to get the most out of their courses and life at school, but there may well be times when other concerns or problems interfere with that aim. Arrangements have been made to offer personalized counseling to children should they feel the need, as talking through issues at such times can often help identify and resolve matters before they become crises.

SPS is a new kind of school and needs a new kind of teacher/administrator. Although they can certainly benefit from training, we subscribe to the idea that first-class teachers are born not made.
