My daughter transferred from another school in the area. She is more confident in her learning since her transition. I asked my child what makes this school different from the other, she said "I don't feel like I am bothering my teacher when I ask questions." shes more inspired to read and has a healthy group of friends that embrace her individuality. Thanks Ms. Pelis
