So far I only have experience with the pre-school program. I would say it is adequate at best. It does not address the needs of the kids that it claims to, with the exception of speech problems. Children are left to their own devices when it comes to fending for themselves against bigger, more aggressive children. The level of parent involvement is mediocre. I think the teachers and staff are rather snobbish and they seem to discourage parents involvement, unless you are one of their favorite parents. It is more like a high school clique of Moms and teachers than it is a school with parents and teachers working together for the good of the kids. I have switched schools and my child now attends a private pre-school.
