A wonderful learning environment for kids. The teachers are exceptional, and very qualified (actual educators with a degree), which seems to be rare nowadays in Florida. They are catering to every type of child, while academically working with every kid on their strength and weaknesses, and making it fun and enjoyable at the same time. The principal is knowledgably, professional, extremely organized and and super caring, which not only shows in her actions, but is reflected how the entire school is operating. I highly recommend this school.

Amazing school. 2 kids there, one since she was 2 and Little one just started. Couldn't be happier. it's hard to find a school that is well balanced and this school has done it! They treat your child as an individual not as a number or percentage. Headmaster, pre school director, Mrs. Mac, Mrs. Wirth and all the staff are highly professional. Warm loving school. Staff from top to bottom are more than dedicated to these children in all aspects. They strive for a well balanced child emotionally mentally and academically. Warm, welcoming, loving and nurturing are just a few words to describe this school. Proud to be a wave parent. Not our religion but they don't force their beliefs just positivity in life. Wish they went to 12th. Have great school in my area prefer to drive the 20-30mins to have my children part of such a wonderful school. Can't brag enough about this school and the positive changes and strives it makes to be better each day. Very big on communication with the parents at all times. They take Mckay and step up programs to give your child the opportunities they might not have some where else. No child goes unnoticed in this school. Each child is celebrated for there individuality, strives and success no matter how small it may seem. Definitely an A+++ school! Go Waves!!!

This is a great school. It is not an easy school academically but they manage to make it fun and engaging. The teachers and headmaster make my children feel special and important. Each teacher, the headmaster, and the staff all know the children's names; I love that. This is a special little school. I wish it went all the way to 12th grade.
