School Reviews

This school is much larger than this web site suggest. It actually goes up to 6th grade and montessori education my children are receiving there is truly priceless. The teachers are genuine and provide as much feedback as a parent could ever as for. The classrooms are large, well maintained, with real montessori manipulatives. There is lots of parking, morning and afternoon care, 2 awesome playgrounds, a gym and they have summer programs.
