This school has been an amazing experience for our family! Admin issues seem to be resolved and, all things considered, it's a fast-paced business that runs pretty smoothly and with lots of love. Exactly what I wanted for my children.

From a classroom perspective, the school has caring and excellent faculty. The administrative office is not always the easiest to deal with on issues.
