School Reviews

  • Recommended May 30, 2011 - Absolutely LOVE this school! We are a military family, and move often. These teachers and students take the time to involve and educate my children. One is in high school, and the other in elementary school, yet here they are in the same building. The older kids look out for the little ones, and everyone gets along. Wonderful, small classes, individualized instruction if needed. - Posted by Parent
