The Head of School retired this year and we have a new principal. He has his doctorate from Harvard and is absolutely fabulous!! This is the best school in Birmingham by far. My child has been here 9 years and has gotten a wonderful education.

Nice facility and teachers. The administrator of the school is very UNPROFESSIONAL. A few issues are she is rude, unwilling to work with parents, teachers and students, and intentionally provides false information to prospective families. Several children, as well as teachers, have left the school due to the administrator's attitude and actions. It is HIGHLY recommended that you do not consider this school for your child/children.
