This school offers the perfect combination of high academic standards and accountability to kids at a very young age while making it fun and not losing site that kids still need to be kids. The facilities including the children''s center are always clean and staffed with qualified good hearted individuals. I have a daughter finishing up the first grade and a baby boy in the child care center. Worth every penny and more to have the piece of mind that my kids are in good hands!
