School Reviews

This is our daughter's first year at Green Acres School and what an awesome experience she has had! She adores going to school every day, is energized and engaged, her teachers really know her and challenge her to be her best. The entire community is extremely warm and open and although we've only been apart of it for five months, it feels like much longer. If you are considering an independent school, go visit and you will understand why it is such a special place.
