Great school! Great teachers that care about the students. They offer weekly Art, PE, Music, and Gardening. There are extracurricular activities such as Girls on the Run, Archery, and Robotics. Our kids love it here!

Love this school! My children are so excited to go to school and learn each day! They have many diverse opportunities such as gardening, girls on the run, student council, archery, and robotics. We love the small class sizes, but we appreciate that there are many activities for the students to become involved. This school is NOT part of Madison Schools, so that information needs to be changed. There has been a recent change in administration, so the person that gave a bad review may want to visit the school again.

It is an awesome school! The teachers really care about my child. He loves the weekly gardening classes and can't wait to be old enough to be in the archery team.

This school has great, caring teachers and staff that help each child learn and grow. Small class sizes are a plus! It is NOT associated with Madison Schools. It was opened as a public charter school in 2012.
