School Reviews

Absolutely love this school. It has such a young, vibrant, and relevant vibe. The student plain is super diverse, yet everyone comes together to celebrate and encourage each other. There's just a feeling of love here that you don't get at a public school. The teachers also make education, especially STEM, top priority.
