Teachers pay close attention to my child''s special needs. The classrooms are happy, but productive, which isvery refreshing. Staff places high values on mutual respect and self respect and they teach my child (and the other kids in the class) tools for developing those values. The classroom and administration have become much more stable and positive over the past few years. My child LOVES this school.
