If you care about your child's curriculum and about fostering the love of learning, then this is a "fit." It is a small school run by an intelligent and insightful Principal. The students have accelerated lessons without stress. Learning comes first here.

Academic standards are high. The teachers are caring and dedicated. Spanish classes start the 3rd year of pre-school. I have both my kids in school here and it's fantastic.
