The best place for my kids! Both of my kids have been attending LEDS since they were in preschool (my oldest is in 5th grade). The teachers, aides, principal and administrative staff members are caring and wonderful with children. My kids are happy (they love this school) and in a loving, safe environment. You will not find another school that promotes the overall well being of a child, in addition to an excellent education.
