I like what I have read. The school is right around the corner from my house. My daughter needs pre-k she is biracial, she is black, white, Indian, German, and Italian. I believe the schools around here would be great for my children. And great she will learn Spanish. I love being around the Hispanics. I rather be here than any where else in Detroit. And I can't wait for her little brother to start. Thank you..
