School Reviews

We love this school! It has a very strong math and science curriculum and great teachers. The class sizes are small, which allows teachers to pay attention to each student's needs. Half of the classes are in English, and half are in Russian, which makes for a really strong bilingual education. Thank you, SFPA!
