Linwood A+ has a fantastic, inclusive academic approach that uses different forms of arts (dance, music, singing, creative movement, drama, etc) to teach children in all disciplines (reading, writing, science, math, social studies). I would highly recommend Linwood A+ to any parent. The staff and principle are top notch!
