Simply the most outstanding principal, vice principal, secretary and faculty available. I would move mountains to keep my child in the French program. The teachers truly care about the students. It is a nurturing environment. I''m just sad because my child only has a few more years left. Wish it was pre-k through 12. I would be the happiest parent in the world.
