School Reviews

Our son started 2nd grade and our daughter was in the Pre-K program. While the school may be small in size and small in student numbers, it is exceedingly large in heart and kindness. The faculty is not the only reason for this. The students are just as wonderful as the teachers. They welcome each student into the school in their own ways and they are always looking out for one another. They don’t treat each other like students, but as brothers and sisters.
