School Reviews

This is a wonderful school with high quality education. The teachers are dedicated, caring and very talented. During this current pandemic this school quickly shifted from in class learning to online learning, with the same class lengths and class schedules. The students are going to class online, discussing art, literature, history and science with the same passion and interest as before. They are learning math with their teachers; they are painting together for art class, singing together for music. Even the youngest of students are singing and dancing together. This school has always been special and now this truly talented group of teachers have allowed my child's education to continue seamlessly and given him a place of normalcy and community during a very difficult time.
