School Reviews

This school continues to grow both in student body and in quality of education. 2012 offered many firsts. This year the school added K-5 to its facility. It also began offering Calculus and AP World History and AP English to its already excellent academic choices.

This is a great school with quality education. The school continues to grow and yet still retains a small school feel with its strong parental support and caring involved staff. I would strongly recommend it.
