The staff at PSA genuinely care about the characteristic, emotional, and educational growth of each student. This school provides a safe place for students with different backgrounds and personalities to come together for this growth. I recommend this school to anyone searching for a curriculum which appropriately challenges each individual and teachers who help to gives the nurturing foundation each child fundamentally needs.
