We fit the traditional middle and high school program into a small, comfortable setting. Our building has eight classrooms, common spaces, and lots of natural light. It is a very nice place to spend the day.

School Reviews

This school is the best kept secret in today''s private school system. The students are happy to go to school every day and the teachers are kind, considerate and extremely knowledgeable in their chosen subjects. I really feel that my child is a better person for attending this amazing school.
