A great School! Very qualified Administrators, Teachers and Staff. The Children actually LEARN here. I have 2 little ones here, a first grader and a second grader. They both read, write, and do math problems beyond what I would expect of their grade level. It is a joy to hear each of them read to me in perfect diction and pronounciation. They understand what they read. I highly recommend this School.
