School Reviews

  • Recommended July 09, 2012 - Such a great place for my middle school son! He has faced his reading difficulties, greatly improved his academics, and his self-esteem has soared. The environment is confident and kind. My son ran for his bus with a smile every day. A wonderful school. - Posted by Parent
