Wonderful caring staff, great small-school environment. Lots of parent involvement and most importantly, my child loves it there! We drive about 15 minutes out of our school district so our child can attend Cuddeback. Everyone is friendly and approachable, from the principal to the bus driver (everyone loves Mr. Bob!). I highly recommend this school. Seems like everyone is accepted there. Not snobby at all. Good, old fashioned family values.
