School Notes

  • Parents are required to attend an Open House or Orientation prior to registration to obtain preliminary information about the school' programs, policies and procedures. This process allows parents the best options in making a more informed decision for placement. We have just added the MONTESSORI approach to early learning for Nursery and Pre-School children. Additionally, we have also included 7th and 8th grades effective September 2011.
