We will be starting our third year at Pegasus, my son Ethan will be going into first grade and started in pfe-k. Our daughter will also be joining as a pre-k'er this year.We couldn't say enough wonderful things about the school, teachers, faculty and fellow parents. The school has an excellent sense of community and strong academics, and teaches global responsibility. We couldn't be happier!
