School Reviews

I have three children enrolled at Prevail Academy, and WE LOVE IT!!!!! The administration runs a tight ship and are compassionate about the students and their needs. The teachers are the best in the business! The always go the extra mile to make sure their students get what they need. The students at Prevail are challenged to reach their full academic/social/moral potential! Enroll with confidence at Prevail Academy!
