I really enjoy having my child in this school. The teacher are great, very concerned about child's well-being, and education. They work very hard to make sure the academics get done, always in contact with parents. Their after school programs are excellent and preparing our child for the future. My daughter loves it there. The school is very clean and organized and very child safe.
