This is a very good school. The teachers and class size are great, and my kids are performing well above grade level. My kids were previously enrolled in a school in Arlington, but surprisingly this surpasses that school. I hope they keep it up.

For parents looking for quality education, that raises the bar for students in a caring environment, I would recommend this school. The admission process is legnthy because your kid has to test to get in but, it's worth it if accepted. The teachers are good, they know he skills kids need to be 21st century global citizens.

I would highly recommend this school. It is a very tight-knit community where everyone is involved and looks out for each other. I am often amazed at what my daughter is being taught. The school offers a variety of activities to keep families engaged.
