School Reviews

5  
I am very pleased with the academic and ethical values instilled at SMLCA. INTEGRITY INSTITUTE is just one facet of the extra attention and love that my daughter embodies from her exposure to the low teacher-student ratios. And, we have the freedom to Pray and say the Pledge to our country. Smlca is an affiliate school of Renewanation.
