School Notes:

We are now on two campuses to provide more space for the students. In addition to our small class size, we have certified teachers with a minimum of a bachelor's degree in education and aids with educational background in addition to their college degrees. We provide a special-needs teacher for the upper grades as well as a Title 1 teacher on each campus. For behavioral management, we use the Holy Bible, COMP, Second Step, and Love and Logic.  We have shown eleven consecutive years of student population growth, and this year we had over 90% of our students eligible to return that re-enrolled.  Our faculty has not changed for three years providing stability to the entire program.
