The elementary program has been such a wonderful environment for our 7 year old son. He is independent, curious, and bright. His love of learning is strong. The teachers at MDS nuture and educate the whole child. The school community is diverse and welcoming, and the buildings and surrounding farm make for a wonderful space to learn in.
