I had my doughts on this school when I enrolled my daughter in kindergarden . It blew me away to find that the teachers and staff were so attentive to my childs needs from staying after school to help her catch up with her education or anything else I was worried about . I could not have placed her in a better educational enviroment. Thanks ALSUP
