This is an amazing school, with amazing teachers. I can't imagine my children going to any other place! Our children have been going to the school for the past 12 years and every year they continue to improve :-) thanks for all that you guys do.

My daughter loves this school. She gets to do mock trial and has learned so much. A group of students goes to World Affairs Council. My daughter got to meet the former President of Mexico. This little private school beats out big 4, 5, and 6A public schools in academic competitions. I think they have even been to national competitions. The academics are solid. The teachers really want students to learn and go out of their way to make it happen. This school is like a family to us.
