School Reviews

This school is a hidden gem! They have handled the challenges of the pandemic exceptionally well, creating a hybrid learning model that is working. I am very grateful for everything the administration must have gone through to make that happen. The tuition does not come easily, so the decision to send my child there was a big one. Many years in, I can say I have never regretted it. It has consistently been a small and welcoming, learning environment. My daughter enjoys all her subjects, including learning both languages (French and Spanish), and speaks highly of her teachers.
