School Reviews

  • Recommended December 09, 2013 - We love this school. My two kids can''t wait to get to school in the morning. They learning environment is exceptional. The kids learn how to learn using a multiple intelligences approach. The 12:1 student/teacher ration is fantastic. My kids have increased their self-confidence and knowledge in an environment that values exploration, instead of learning by rote. - Posted by Parent
