School Reviews

  • Recommended January 31, 2013 - My daughter has had a wonderful 5 years in the Lower School. She has been nurtured, supported and loved by the Lower School teachers. As well, Dr. Graham, the principal, is a tremendous administrator and the kids and parents love him! I would strongly suggest that you visit the school. - Posted by Parent
