I am so grateful that we found this school. My son and daughter attend and have learned so much. Unfortunately, my son started school in a district school and was so far behind. He was not even learning concepts yet that this school was teaching. My only wish is that they went through 12th grade because I know all children would benefit. The teachers go above and beyond and go out of their way to ensure each student achieves their best. They know my children by name, even if they have not been in their class. I love that they wear uniforms.
