Even though Laguna is our home school, we toured all the other options. To date, we are very happy with Laguna and a great fit for our family. We like the community feel, the teachers, the respect of Dr. Root, the principal, as well as the academics. It is a nice blend of teaching kids as well as letting them grow thru experience, love and play.
