- December 11, 2012 - I sent my duaghter here for PK3. We had to move out of state at the end of the school year or we would still be there. The teachers are awesome and very caring. The curriculum is fantastic. I do not have a single complaint about this school. Well, maybe the cost. But trust me it is worth it. :) - Posted by Parent
