If your child is the smile-and-take-it type, and you are, it could be ok for you. And it's not Mother Mary they fawn over - they are the happy-clappy ,hands in the air, feel His presence variety. The ex-principal used to make the kids listen to him play one-man-band Christian rock originals. And he tried to flog his CDs at school events. He's out of the picture now, but that may give you an idea of school culture.
    I thought you were being way over the top in your first post but having read that perhaps not .

    Just want to add that if your son doesn't have excellent Chinese it will be very difficult to get a place in those famous, top local schools. They hand select elite students.
