Sonrisa School has been a miracle for our family. OUR daughter hated attending school. Every morning was a battle to get her into the car. Homework was yet another struggle every evening. She has been attending Sonrisa School for the past 2 years and we finally feel like we have my daughter back.Not only does she now attend school willingly, but she skips into the car and cannot wait until we get there. The teachers at Sonrisa are simply amazing! They are well trained to work with children who learn differently but most importantly they are nurturing and treat each student as an individual. Along with laughter and joy, there is a deep respect between teachers and students. We feel blessed to have found this fabulous school for our little girl.A Blissful Parent,
