School Reviews

Wonderful family feel among students, parents, faculty, and staff. Rigorous curriculum balanced with fun and creativity. Great art, music, & theater program as well as core curriculum and P.E program. Every child graduates knowing now to read music. Full day pre-k 3 and pre-k 4 grades offered. Preschoolers take music, Spanish, and even science with lab! Love it
