School Reviews

I have been sending my children to this school for 9 years. I send them to this school over all others because of the extremely loving and supportive atmosphere the school encourages and was built on. Being a former orphanage, this schools roots are to provide a safe, supportive environment for any child in it s care, regardless of race or economic status. This has proven to produce exceptional results from test scores but more importantly the qualities that make good citizens and neighbors of the future.

This school offers a challenging curriculum coupled with a nurturing environment. I also enjoy the blend of traditional and progressive education. There are lots of project-based assignments mixed with reading and writing.
