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.

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.
