My daughter has been attending this school for a couple of weeks and so far we have pleased. She is in K, we were nervous about sending her here because it is on the south side of syracuse, but the school is gorgeous and the classes are all extremely updated nicely. In just her class she has 12 brand new apple computers. That is amazing! The quality of the academic programs is wonderful. They do not offer any extracurricular activities though, and I did not like that. It would be nice to see them offer atleast ballet or a sport. But it's nothing for k, I am not sure about the other grades. The level of teacher parent involvement seems to be ok. I wish they improved on that a bit. I am going to the school to let them know I will volunteer my services. I would like to be a very active member of my daughter's education, just like all parents really should be.
