This is a great school, I love how hard they work with your child on everything. It's not just one subject or activities, they truly show that they care about your child as well as you. They don't give up on your child and they don't let your child give up on themselves. Yes, they do push your child, but sometimes a child needs that, they only do that because they know your child can do this. I also like the fact that they give out awards for sports, reading, etc. I have never been to a school that gives medals and all type of awards for the childrens progress that they have made so far. That is wonderful, all that does is make the kids want to do more and work harder. My son goes to this school and he really,really loves it( can't wait for 2nd grade). They don't put up with kids fighting or yelling at each other, very good look outs(know bad tempers here). Wonderful School !!
