School Reviews

I haven''t got enough kind and good words for the Susan Odell Taylor School. They''re generous and wonderful, and truly a welcoming community. This is a fantastic place to bring your child to learn, and the people who make it happen really care about the kids who attend. The smaller class sizes, the combined 1-2/3-4/5-6 grades, the summer programs, the afterschool activities and the quality curriculum have made me not only a believer but an advocate. You can''t go wrong with this school.
