My child has learned so much from her pre-Kindergarten teacher, she 'actually' loved getting up in the morning and getting in her uniform to go to Pt. Ferman. I would highly recommend this school not only for the fun way of learning they present but also, from a parents' standpoint, the # of children per teacher, the average gpa was above average for the district and it's nice to see the same teachers & staff year after year. The turnaround (students excluded) is very low.
