School Reviews

My son has had an enriching experience over the past 5 years that he has attended. His teachers were wonderful and really caring. The Montessori education he gets not only nurtures his intellectual growth but it has bolstered his social growth. I really think he is being equipped with the necessary tools for success tomorrow.

And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
