I am actually a grandparent of a student at Menlo. I volunteer at least once a week and cannot say enough about this school. The teachers are just amazing! With so many students with so many talents and of course brains, they keep them moving and learning. My grandson was so bored at his old traditional school, but now is a happy little boy.
