School Reviews

  • Recommended January 06, 2015 - While I like that they have GT program, I do not like the fact that they do not have anything fun for kids. Most schools give certificates after completing Kindergarten. Most schools have Halloween parade or Christmas party. This school is so boring. The are is just depressing. - Posted by Parent
