School Reviews

  • Recommended July 24, 2014 - Facility is great. We enrolled because the cost was reasonable, they follow same curriculum as public schools, with same tests (SOL, PALS etc) and the offer on-campus before & after care. We will post an updated review after we get our KDG and 1st Grader started in the Fall. - Posted by Parent
