Hi there

My daughter will be starting in Secondary school next year.
I have "narrowed down" to Raphaela´s in Sandyford, Jesus and Mary College (Our Lady´s Grove) in Clonskeagh and Wesley in Ballinteer.

I would prefer not to pay for education as Wesley is really expensive and I´m not sure it offers a better Leaving Cert.
I´ve heard very good things about Jesus and Mary and we live along the route of the private bus that they use. Also we´re about a 15 minute cycle from there.

So has anyone any experience of this school? It is our preferred currently.
Any comments on the bus? What happens if your daughter does sport after school, I expect the bus isn´t there for that.
Is/was your daughter happy there?
The atmosphere seems good, are the girls generally friendly?
Were/Are you pleased with the level of push from the teachers?

Any other comments?
