Amazing teachers and environment! They are so supportive, kind, and really care about the wellbeing of their students. This school focuses on the Biblical worldview, and I feel strong that it is preparing our children to move forward with their faith in world that is moving away from God. I am so thankful for their time of with my kids. My kids have nothing positive words to say about their experiences.
