A fantastic inclusive community that has really prepared my children both academically and spiritually. I've graduated one middle schooler who started in the lower school and is now at one of the top private schools in San Antonio, and I have a current middle schooler who is thriving and is challenged every day. The community is welcoming and warm. The academics are top notch, the innovation by the administration shows that technology can be thoroughly implemented without overwhelming students, and the involvement of the church in their everyday lives simply helps my children to be better well-rounded people.
