Only cares about enhancing school reputation, rowing and the model students. May treat other students poorly or worse. And the exam centre idea is unneeded and the $500 MIN "donation" unreasonable.

If you fit a certain mould and are either extremely focused and academic - or a rower you will be fine. If you are different she will make you feel like you will are nothing and will never be nothing.
