School Reviews

  • Recommended October 14, 2013 - This is an amazing school. My son started there when he turned 3, and during his first week there, he woke up in the middle of the night just to tell us all about gravity and spaceships -- the things he had just learned and was really excited about. The teachers are encouraging and nurturing; they really care about the kids'' individual talents and structure the curriculum to suit each child''s needs. The administration is helpful and responsive. I highly recommend this school. - Posted by Parent
