Our daughter has been attending this school since August 2013, it is the best decision we made for her. Everyone at the school works together for the good of the students. The curriculum is extensive, we have been impressed by how much our daughter has learnt. She has also learnt confidence, discipline, and respect for self and others. It is a "bully free " school. All the parents are involved and this creates a good learning atmosphere. The before and after school program is excellent! The teachers are wonderful and caring. They involve all the students in activities. It is very rare to find an organization that has pleasant employees day in day out, well, we found that at this school! Parents and students receive a private school quality service at this charter school and we would recommend it to any parents that want to set a firm foundation for their child/children.

I really like this school, my kids love going every single day and they always have something good to say about school. My kids go to the after school program and they love it. The after care program teachers are very friendly and they always have something nice to say and they treat my children very well.
