My son has been here for one year. The teachers are incredibly gifted and talented. Each student receives essentially a custom-designed education. They progress as fast as they learn. My son has some mild special needs which are accommodated here and are a good fit with the student body. This school is like a family -- it takes a village to raise a child, and that includes being partners with their educators. I highly recommend!
