Have had 4 children go to this school that all had different interests and personalities. They were nurtured, challenged and taught according to their strengths and weaknesses. If they needed extra help, the teachers are always willing and able. The school teaches the whole child and not just singular focus on test grades.The children were well prepared for high school. A wonderful, warm school community.
