School Reviews

  • Recommended April 12, 2013 - We are fortunate to be a part of this vibrant, dedicated community. There is such a close knit, inviting group of parents and teachers at this school. We have attended this school for 7 years after being in public school and appreciate the depth and breadth of the meaningful classical education as well as the commitment of the leadership. - Posted by Parent
