My daughter has attended PJ since she was 3, she is now in the 3rd grade. I plan on keeping her enrolled until she reaches the final grade they offer. All the teachers are wonderful! She has a full academic schedule and has music, art, and Spanish class time, as well. I am very pleased with her success at PJ. Recently, the children were able to participate in the National Spelling Bee competition. The elementary children participate in a science fair in the winter and an art and writing fair in the spring. The school offers many "family nights" programs. I am very pleased with all this small school has to offer.
