I've had three kids go through Alberta Smith. K teachers are great, as are all of the other teachers and staff. Highly recommend this school!

This school puts too much on Kindergarteners as to what is expected of them. Yime out is their favorite use of words; a learning environment that is very discouraging and keeps him or her from being excited about learning and coming to school.
