Having taught at a public preschool, elementary school, and high school as well as completed contract work for all but two of the private schools currently in Florence, SC, I can recommend MSF without any reservations. The small class sizes, warm and caring faculty and staff, and individualized instruction for each child make this my top choice. My child has a few fine motor challenges, but that does not stop his teachers from getting the absolute most of of him. He enjoys this school, where he cried before. As a parent AND educator, I can truly say this is completely worth the sacrifices we are making to send him here.
