This school is amazing and I'm in middle school like when you don't like math you just LOVE the teacher he can be so funny!! Or any other subject the teachers are always supporting you no matter what happens!!! I've been in the school since kindergarten so I've been here for 7 years!!

This is a terrible school . If you want your child to learn to read , write and be able to do math . Then this is not the school for you . If you want your child to play all day and do plays and get ready for Halloween , and trips to Hearts desire beach . Then this is the school for you . When I first moved there a couple of people told me it wasn't the best school and maybe I should consider I different school . I decided to give the school a try. What a mistake . My child is now in a new school and two (2) grade levels behind . I've had my child tested at three different tutoring places and they all said the same thing . I am now spending a small fortune to get my child up to speed . I had also read some Yelp reviews on this school before I embarked on the LSD journey . The Yelp reviews said what I am saying now . That the kids where two grad levels behind and having to be tutored . It's a lazy school in regards to proper education . Yes they are thoughtful about nurturing the children's imagination , but not enough practical application on education .
