I'd would to enroll my daughter next year at NGS. She will start Kindergarten. My friends told me that Next Generation is a good school. Is that true? How hard is to get a place? How much is per month? How many classrooms are in Kindergarten? How many children are in each class?Any info I'll appreciate it. Thanks.

Next Generation is a great school with exceptional academics in its 3 and 4 year old programming. Students take on fun projects like building solar systems and making castles out of the classroom. All faculty is competent, patient, and younger. This is a nice contrast to the more parochial schools around with older teachers. Teaching standards comport with modern educational philosophies.
