This school is such a little gem. Located just across the street from the Gulf of Mexico, we couldn't believe how lucky we were to have found such an awesome school for our son. Miss Katie and Miss Kathy are excellent teachers who truly take their time to work with your child and his/her individual needs. We have almost completed their primary program and will move on to lower elementary in August. They also have a great beach summer camp for 3-6-year-olds that you don't want to miss!

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
