I am a new parent to this school, but so far my child is happy and comfortable. With in the first week i was getting feedback from every teacher i came in contact with who had had contact with my daughter. The school stuff have been very helpful. The on-premises after school program has been very good ( to 6 pm). The first hour they do homework and for the last hour they have different activities for each day. The food is on the healthy side, which is great! Yes, i definitely recommend this school.
