School Reviews

  • Recommended July 27, 2012 - This is outstanding school one of children was just promoted in June this year and my daughter is starting 7th grage this year and can''t wait to go back. I''ve never seen such a better attitude in learning and wanting to go to school after summer recess, since they left public school. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended October 31, 2011 - This school is good. A lot of the kids that go here are really nice. The teachers are always pushing the students to their highest limit. The assignments are fast and easy but you learn a lot about the subject. - Posted by Student/Alumni
