This is a FANTASTIC school. Both teachers my son has had, for kindergarten and first grade (Parker & Leopold) were incredible instructors who treated all the children kindly and with respect. They were also very good at handling conflict, never raised their voices, were practically angelic. I would highly recommend this school.
