There has been a long discussion about this on talk-de some time ago.

Outcome was to not tag "special schools" with amenity=school.

If a renderer wants to differentiate between a general purpose school 
and a ski school (and I really think renderers want to do that), it has 
to know all possible school=xy subtags that's probably out there.

What is the benefit to put this all under amenity=school - and then have 
a tag no renderer actually can use, because it is far too generic?
