The academic program is very strong. The teachers are excellent, creating a challenging and supportive environment where children love learning. Small class sizes. Foreign language (Spanish or French) begins in Kindergarten. Music, art and PE are taught in every grade. Sports begin in 5th grade. No SOLs. The academics are the best in town, but more importantly the students are happy, caring, and kind.
