My kids have been at SRB for 9 years now and we love it. It is a fantastic school. My kids are happy and receiving an excellent education. They have an amazing sports program, many after school options and something for everyone. And the community is like no other! Enrolling my kids and getting involved in the community was one of the best decisions we've made for our family.
