School Reviews

We were very pleased with the kindergarten program Ms Forbes develops and delivers. While the school technically followed the West Shore SD curriculum, it was appartent to us that our son received MORE of everything that matters through Ms. Forbes program than what he would have received through the School District. If Ms. Forbes is still instructing the children we will send our daughter too!
